Tickets for Kid Rock’s recently-announced Bad Reputation Tour went on sale yesterday. And as fans hopped online to buy tickets for what he says may be the last large arena tour of his career, Kid Rock took to social media to assure fans that they don’t have to worry about venues implementing vaccine or mask requirements after they buy tickets.
Because if they do, he’s cancelling the show.
Kid Rock said his team has done their research to make sure that none of the venues on the schedule will be requiring masks or proof of vaccination when his tour rolls into town.
“We’ve done all our research on this and the consensus says that all this is going to be done, if there are any of these venues. I’m not aware of any, but if there are any [the requirements] are going to 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 cause I won’t be showing up either.”
This obviously shouldn’t come as a surprise to anybody who knows anything about Kid Rock, who took aim at masks in his most recent release.
“We The People” begins with a fiery rant, taking shots at President Biden, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Facebook and Twitter, the mainstream media and more, but by the end, he calls for love and unity.
“We the people in all we do Reserve the right to scream “Fuck you” Wear your mask, take your pills Now a whole generation’s mentally ill (Hey-yeah) man, fuck Fauci…”
Rock also recently tweeted that “We The People” has the approval of former President Donald Trump.
Oh, and by the way…. I just got off the phone with our 45th President (hopefully 47th) and he expressed how proud of me he was over “We The People” being the #1 song on Itunes! Suck on that you trolls, critics and haters! Continued… (1/2)https://t.co/nlmw7vA1dS
Kid Rock is just the latest artist to take a stance in the debate over vaccine or mask requirements at concerts, with Travis Tritt notably announcing that he would not play at any venue requiring proof of vaccination and even cancelling shows at venues that had requirements in place.
And on the other side of the issue, Jason Isbell has said that he will only play shows at venues that require either proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test, and has cancelled shows at venues that are unwilling or unable to implement the requirements.
