The COVID-19 Pandemic has shook the entire world. The government has advised people to stay at home and go out only when necessary to avoid a hike in the COVID-19 cases. However, it remains a big challenge to stop people from gathering up. A similar incident has happened where hundreds of people were present together at a musical concert of country singer Chase Rice.
The singer had organized his first live concert in months with hundreds of unmasked fans gathered up in a stadium. Yes, UNMASKED!
Chase, on Saturday, played for his fans in Petros, Tennessee, and appeared really excited and thrilled. In one of his Instagram stories, he wrote ‘We Back‘ accompanied by a large crowd of his fans singing his hit song “Eyes on You.”
Following this, the singer and fans who attended the concert received flak from several people on Twitter!

Chase Rice really held a concert and 4,000 people attended. No masks, no social distancing, crowded together. What was the point of those three long months in quarantine just to do shit like this the very moment we have flattened the curve enough that we can start to reopen?

Country singer Kelsea Ballerini also called out Chase Rice and expressed her displeasure and anger over the concert.
Imagine being selfish enough to put thousands of people’s health at risk, not to mention the potential ripple effect, and play a NORMAL country concert right now. @ChaseRiceMusic, We all want (and need) to tour. We just care about our fans and their families enough to wait. 🤷🏼♀️ https://t.co/eJaLnGu28k

TMZ informs that less than a 1,000 people attended the concert while the venue had a maximum capacity of 4,000 people. Also, the venue claims that temperature checks and distribution of hand sanitizers were done along with the vendors being advised to wear proper masks and gloves in order to maintain ‘safe conditions!’
Nearly 48 hours after the concert, Chase Rice addressing the situation posted a video on his Instagram handle captioned ‘To the fans, love y’all.’
Chase Rice, confirming his upcoming Friday concert said that “Thank you guys for understanding, please go by the rules, please go by the laws on this Friday show coming up and shows moving forward.”
The state of Tennessee has recorded its highest number of new COVID19 cases (1,410) in one day on June 26. Huge!
