I’m so sorry to all three people who fall within the intersecting point of a Venn Diagram of “people vaccinated from COVID-19” and “Kid Rock Fans” because he says that he will NEVER perform at a venue with any form of Coronavirus mask or vaccine mandates. Kid Rock’s obviously missing the point that any venue with a vaccine mandate already doesn’t want him there, but hey!
People says that Kid Rock is kicking off his Bad Reputation tour on April 6th in Evansville, Indiana. And you can be sure that whatever venue he’s performing at, there are absolutely zero guidelines or precautions being taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19. In a video he shared to Facebook, Kid Rock assures his fans that they will be able to come to his show no matter what their vaccination status is. Using an anti-vaxxer’s favorite line, he says that his team has done the “research” and they know what venues don’t have any kind of vaccine or mask mandates.
“There’s been a lot of talk about vaccine mandates and venues. People saying, “I’m not going to that venue because the vaccine mandate” and this, that and the other. Trust me. We’ve done all our research on this and the consensus says that all this is gonna be done–if there are any of these venues–I’m not aware of any, but if there are any, they’re gonna be gone by the time we get to your city… If they’re not, trust me, you don’t have to worry. You’ll be getting your money back because I won’t be showing up, either. If you think I’m gonna sit out there and sing, Don’t Tell Me How to Live and We the People while people are holding up their fucking vaccine cards and wearing masks, that shit ain’t happening.”
This works out great for me who doesn’t want to hear Kid Rock sing either of those songs. He goes on to say that he had to cancel planned appearances in Buffalo, Toronto, and several other cities over the venues’ COVID protocols.
Honestly, even if we weren’t in a pandemic, you should wear a face-covering if you make the decision to go to a Kid Rock show. I mean, you never know who’s going to get too excited, take their colostomy bag off, and just whip that shit (literally) all over the place.
