In March the US came to a stop, due to Covid-19. 3 months later things are slowly beginning to reopen, but one thing that isn’t coming back anytime soon….concerts.
Public health officials have stated that large events like concerts probably won’t be able to return until fall of 2021. That reality doesn’t sit well with 72 year old Sammy Hagar.
Being in the high risk category for Covid-19, Hagar runs the possibility of not recovering if he were to get sick, but it’s a risk he’s willing to take, according to an interview he recently did with Rolling Stone.
Hagar said “I’ll be comfortable playing a show before there’s a vaccine, if it’s declining and seems to be going away. I’m going to make a radical statement here. This is hard to say without stirring somebody up, but truthfully, I’d rather personally get sick and even die, if that’s what it takes. We have to save the world and this country from this economic thing that’s going to kill more people in the long run. I would rather see everyone go back to work. If some of us have to sacrifice on that, OK. I will die for my children and my grandchildren to have a life anywhere close to the life that I had in this wonderful country. That’s just the way that I feel about it. I’m not going to go around spreading the disease. But there may be a time where we have to sacrifice. I mean, how many people die on the Earth every day? I have no idea. I’m sorry to say it, but we all gotta die, man.”
What do you think? Would you attend a concert before there’s a vaccine?
