Mötley Crüe co-founder and also the bassist of the band, Nikki Sixx, has posted a couple of new tweets on his verified Twitter page today and shared his reaction to the bands and musicians who perform for New Year’s Eve despite the coronavirus pandemic.
As you might already know, the number of coronavirus cases in the United States have been increasing day by day. According to the official numbers that were last updated on January 1st, there are over 20 million coronavirus cases in America and over 350 thousand people have been passed away since the beginning of the outbreak.
While the numbers grow each day, the bands have postponed or canceled most of their shows in 2020 to keep their fans safe. However, some bands and musicians have chosen to gather the benefits of New Year’s Eve and performed live in front of the crowd. Today, Nikki Sixx has posted a new tweet about the issue and accused the musicians of being irresponsible.
Here is what Nikki Sixx said about those performers:
“What’s yer thoughts on all these different artists performing for NYE during a global pandemic. I think it’s stupidly irresponsible.“
A follower of Sixx responded:
“If all precautions are in place and artists a being safe, keeping a safe distance and it’s all been conducted within the guidelines the fair enough. You just as at risk eating at the restaurant or going to a shopping center.”
Another fan wrote this:
“As a nurse, I think it’s very irresponsible, to those who are immune-compromised, I love music and artistic venues but be responsible enough to think of others and think of those who fought to live and didn’t and to those give everything to help your loved ones.”
