The COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect everyone in the world and that includes the likes of MMA fighters, musicians and more. Oscar De La Hoya had to cancel his upcoming boxing match after contracting COVID-19. Comedian and actor Patton Oswalt also had to take measures due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic recently.
That wasn’t all as even Kid Rock had to cancel several shows after more than half of his band tested positive for COVID-19 as well. A lot of venues also do not follow the current COVID-19 regulations either.
Patton Oswalt took to his Instagram and uploaded a video where he revealed that cancelled his upcoming tour dates in Florida and Salt Lake City because the venues would not comply with his request that attendees either show proof of full vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test.
“The good news is we’re keeping everyone who comes to these shows safe and healthy because the numbers are going up. Now the bad news, of course, is there are five venues on the tour that are not complying with this.
“This difficult decision was made due to the rising numbers of Covid cases and also because I have an ego, but my ego is not big enough to think that people should die to hear my stupid comedy,” Oswalt said in the video about the cancellations. “So hopefully, hopefully, in the future we can rebook those when sanity holds sway again. But this sucks, I was really looking forward to Florida, to Salt Lake City.”
We sincerely hope more venues will be stricter when it comes to adhering to the COVID-19 regulations a basic level of responsibility is needed in order to overcome COVID-19 in the end.
