Two women told they weren't allowed to kiss at Edmonton concert

Allyson MacIvor was at Rogers Place to take in White's performance, which was capped off with one of the most popular alternative rock of all time, "Seven Nation Army".

"The news that two women were stopped from kissing during my show in Edmonton really disappointed me", White wrote on Wednesday (November 7).

White, who dedicated "Love Interruption" to the pair at his next show, in Calgary, then shared a snap of two women kissing at a Beatles concert back in 1964. White shared a photo of two women kissing in the audience at a Beatles concert in 1964, praising "how attractive the situation is".

Allyson MacIvor posted on Facebook after the Friday night concert at Rogers Place that she and a friend were kissing during an encore when the usher told them to stop because it wasn't allowed. See the photo and White's full statement below.

"Let's promote love and acceptance wherever and whenever we can".

MacIvor wrote on Facebook that she was caught up in the moment, listening to one of her favourite songs, when she grabbed her friend and kissed her. "I embraced my girlfriend, and some staff member came in between us", explains the Canadian Jack White fan, "and she said, 'This is not allowed here'".

Marijuana legalization on the ballot in four states
Amendment 3 , on the other hand, would have placed a 15 percent tax on weed you'd buy at a storefront, and a tax on wholesale bud. MI is now one of nine states that allow recreational use of the substance, including California, Colorado, and Washington, D.C.

They complained after the show to a manager, who MacIvor says was very understanding and apologized right away.

Still, she felt "violated and hurt", so she filled out an incident report, and made a decision to share her experience on Facebook.

Shocked, MacIvor asked if she meant kissing her friend, to which the employee responded, "yes, and if you have a problem with that you can speak to my manager".

She explained: "When we approached the office, the worker told it as she saw it: 'They were kissing at their seats during the encore, which is inappropriate sexual behaviour'".

"Proud of you and be who you are and live freely", one person wrote. "People can be cruel but there is a lot of good people out there who love you and support you ❤❤".
