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

Jack White at the White House

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

Allyson MacIvor said she was approached by a Rogers Place employee and told "This is not allowed here" as White belted out his former band's smash hit "Seven Nation Army".

White shared a photo that he described as depicting a lesbian couple kissing at a Beatles concert in 1964, and added that he dedicated his song "Love Interruption" to the couple at his next show, in Calgary.

White responded with an Instagram message saying: "Two people expressing affection shouldn't have to hide".

An Edmonton-based musician made a decision to go public with a shocking incident that happened to her at a Jack White concert in the Alberta capital last week.

Jack White posted about the incident at his gig on Instagram.

He rounded off the post by urging fans, "Let's promote love and acceptance wherever and whenever we can".

MacIvor said she challenged the member of staff and was taken to the manager's office, who apologised to the two women over the incident.

Cross Counter is the 2018 Melbourne Cup victor
Last year Regal Monarch, which fell in race four on Melbourne Cup day, was euthanased after being injured during the race. The Aidan O'Brien-trained runner broke down just after crossing the post the first time - just 1000m after the start.

In a lengthy Facebook post, which has since gone viral, she explained that she had kissed her friend during a song played in the final encore.

She pulled MacIvor away from her seat, waving her finger disapprovingly, and told MacIvor "that's not allowed here".

The worker told her manager "they were kissing at their seats during the encore, which is inappropriate sexual behaviour", at which point the manager took control and sent the woman on her way.

"We have an absolute zero tolerance for any form of discrimination", said a spokesperson for the Oilers Entertainment Group, noting that the venue is a safe and inclusive space.
