Kid Rock will not perform in theaters with COVID-19 restrictions
Kid Rock has threatened to cancel shows on his upcoming tour if venues require concertgoers to wear masks or show proof of vaccinations to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
In a Facebook Live video on Thursday, recorded before tickets for his upcoming ‘Bad Reputation Tour’ went on sale, the musician said he wouldn’t be performing with COVID-19 restrictions in place because his fans told them. that they would not participate in his show.
“You’re going to get your money back because I won’t show up either,” the musician said in the video. “If you think I’m gonna sit over there and say don’t tell me how to live, ‘We The People’, while people are holding up their fuckin’ vaccine cards and wearing masks, that’s shit *it’s not happening.”
The quote refers to one of his new songs, “Don’t Tell Me How To Live”, which was released in November 2021.
the 26 show tour is scheduled to start in Evansville, Indiana on April 6. The tour will conclude in September with two shows near his native Detroit at Pine Knob on September 16 and 17.
Kid Rock also claimed in the video that he hasn’t booked a show in Buffalo, NY and Toronto due to COVID-19 restrictions.
“I don’t want to deal with that shit either and I know you don’t,” he said.
