Vanilla Ice is encouraging folks to deliver their ‘dancin shoes’ and ‘Speedo’s’ to his Independence Day live performance in Texas, which simply hit a report with 8,000 new instances of coronavirus.
Vanilla Ice is again with a brand spanking new live performance and this time, lovers aren’t appreciating the throwback. On June 24, the 52-year-old “Ice Ice Baby” rapper introduced that he’ll be acting on the “Independence Day Throwback Beach Party” on the Emerald Point Bar & Grill in Austin, Texas — one of the crucial 4 states with probably the most reported coronavirus instances within the United States. “Get ready to go back to The 90s, the greatest decade ever. Bring your dancin shoes, Speedo’s, bikinis, neon colors and and ninja turtle gear… hahha,” Ice wrote below the live performance poster, apparently oblivious to the pandemic that has claimed the lives of greater than 2,000 lives in Texas.
The venue is at the shore of Lake Travis, and is promoting as much as 2,500 tickets (priced between $25-$300), the Austin Chronicle reported. With the opportunity of 2,500 folks packed shoulder-to-shoulder, folks weren’t too extremely joyful to listen to about Ice’s upcoming gig as soon as it began trending on July 1. On that very same day, the Texas Department of State Health Services reported 8,076 new coronavirus instances — a brand new single-day report for the virus scorching spot.
“Imagine dying of the coronavirus because you went to a f–king Vanilla Ice concert,” creator Eric Francisco tweeted, whilst someone else wrote, “If you get COVID because you went to the Vanilla Ice concert that somehow is the exception to closure rules, frankly, you deserve that.” Fans consider Ice couldn’t learn the room, taking into account that the state’s governor Greg Abbott simply ordered all bars to be closed and diminished eating place capability to 50 p.c on June 26.
“Vanilla Ice is trending because he is throwing a concert in Texas for the 4th of July. If you go to this concert and catch COVID, don’t ask anyone to stop, collaborate, and listen to your dumba–,” any other fan tweeted, and someone else mirrored that frustration: “Imagine having to go on a ventilator bc you just had to see Vanilla Ice.”
Meanwhile, Ice turns out extra preoccupied with the ’90s. On June 28, he shared a throwback clip from a packed live performance and wrote, “I can’t wait to get back to this. The 90s were the best. We didn’t have coronavirus, or cell phones, or computers. we had 5.0‘s, blockbuster, Beavis and Butthead, Wayne’s world, Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan. And Mortal Kombat is still better than fortnight but we got out of the house, We danced, we invented house parties in the 90s. The last of the great decades #IMissThenineties.”
