Garth Talks COVID-19 Precautions Prior To Las Vegas Concert
Rolling Stone reports that during a press conference prior to the Las Vegas concert, Garth addressed precautions that he and his team are taking to avoid COVID-19.
“We’re taking all the precautions that we possibly can to make sure that we’re doing our part,” Garth states. “Then the rest of it you just kind of throw up to fate and common sense of the people you’re playing for.”
Garth then says that he really hopes that the message gets across to other musicians, who are planning live performances. He said he hopes they consider the importance of avoiding spreading COVID-19 among their fans.
“If you’re going to do it, do it responsibly until we can get back to being real musicians and not having to be responsible,” he declares.
Garth Brooks will perform in Cheyenne, Kansas City, Lincoln, and Cincinnati. He will also be performing for the first time ever at the Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee on July 31st. Garth’s next show will take place at the Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City this upcoming week.
