AceShowbiz - Kid Rock is being selective with locations for his upcoming "Bad Reputation" tour. Taking to Instagram, the "All Summer Long" singer informed fans that he will not perform at venues with COVID-19 vaccine and mask mandates.
"There's been a lot of talk about vaccine mandates and venues," the 51-year-old first said in a video. "People saying, 'I'm not going to that venue because of 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 going to be done, if there are any at these venues, I'm not aware of any, but if there are any, they're going to be gone by the time we get to your city," the crooner added. "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."
Rock went on to lament, "It's actually kind of unfortunate. We actually scratched Buffalo, New York off the list because of that and Toronto, Canada and several other cities we were looking at." He then emphasized, "I don't want to deal with that s**t either."
Rock himself made fun at COVID-19 safety protocols in his new track called, "We the People". He also called out President Joe Biden and the country's leading infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, in the song.
We the people in all we do reserve the right to scream, 'F**k you,' " the musician shouted. "Wear your mask, take your pills/ Now a whole generation's mentally ill/ man, f**k Fauci."
"But COVID's near, it's coming to town/ We gotta act quick, shut our borders down," Rock, who has been a vocal supporter of former President Donald Trump, continued singing. "Joe Biden does, the media embraces/ Big Don does it and they call him racist."
