Kid Rock says he will cancel concerts on his upcoming tour if venues require fans to show proof of vaccine or any other COVID-19 safety protocols in place.
“If there are any venues — I’m not aware of any — they’re gonna be gone by the time we get to your city,” he said in a Facebook video. “If they’re not, 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 going to sit out there and sing ‘Don’t Tell Me How To Live’ and ‘We The People’ while people are holding up their f*cking vaccine cards and wearing masks — that sh*t ain’t happening.”
According to Rolling Stone, several arenas where he is booked to perform — including PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey, and the Xfinity Center in Mansfield, Massachusetts — require proof of vaccine or a negative COVID test from within 72 hours.
Kid Rock‘s U.S. tour with FOREIGNER and GRAND FUNK RAILROAD will kick off on April 6 at the Ford Center in Evansville, Indiana, making stops across the U.S. in Nashville, Boston, Chicago, and more before wrapping up with two shows in Detroit. JASON BONHAM’S LED ZEPPELIN EVENING will appear on select dates on the 24-city “Bad Reputation Tour”, with a special appearance by Trey Lewis at all shows.
