Chase Rice I went back on tour this weekend – and to kick things off … the guy allowed thousands of people to flood a concert hall, with ZERO greetings for the safety of the coronavirus.
The country singer held his first show some Saturday night at the former prison converted into an event center called Brushy Mountain State Penitentiary in Petros, Tennessee. It can usually hold 10,000 bodies for a concert, but this weekend … only 4,000 have been admitted.
However, this turned out to be more than enough to regroup tightly and regroup together for Chase’s return to the stage. That’s exactly what happened, something that filmed itself.
As you can see, swarms of people are too close for comfort – they don’t even practice the slightest hint of social distance – and practically NO ONE wears a mask, including Chase. However, it is more about people on the ground: they are really at risk.
It also doesn’t help that Chase was driving them in a singular moment, which probably exacerbated any potential “rona molecule that is already flying in the air”. And of course – as in many other parts of the country – COVID-19 cases are also popping up in TN.
Oddly enough, the Brushy prison site clearly says they will stick to the social distance – but it seems they must have lost their showtime reminder.
What’s even stranger than all of this is that a handful of other venues for Chase’s upcoming concerts are actually drive-in type facilities, which would ease the concerns we see here. So, was this *** security show just a one-off or one-off? Hard to say for sure right now.
Anyway, we contacted the Chase team for a comment … so far, no answer.
