Migos follow 50 Cent and more in playing packed Super Bowl.
Migos became the newest act to play controversial Super Bowl live shows in Florida this weekend.
Yesterday (February 7), the band toasted the headline game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs by playing to a packed and maskless crowd in Tampa.
They follow the likes of fifty Cent and Steve Aoki, who both played gigs with no social distancing within the state over the weekend.
Last night, Migos and Moneybagg both played gigs in Florida, with footage showing no social distancing and limited mask-wearing within the crowds.In the wake of fifty Cent’s show in an airport hangar in St. Petersburg, Florida, the city’s mayor Rick Kriseman called the gig “stupid”.
“This isn’t how we should always be celebrating the Super Bowl,” he said during a statement. “It’s not safe or smart. It’s stupid. We’re getting to take a really close check out this, and it’s going to find yourself costing someone tons quite 50 cent.”
Since the pandemic hit last March, an entire host of shows have taken place across the us that violated coronavirus restrictions.
Back in August, thousands gathered at a motorbike rally in South Dakota for a Smash Mouth concert. Following the show, researchers from the middle for Health Economics and Policy Studies at San Diego State University published a study which investigated whether the 2020 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally was an example of a “superspreader” event.
The academics concluded that the Sturgis Rally added an estimated 263,708 cases of coronavirus — which equates to 19% of the entire number folks cases between August 2 and September 2 — to the US total number of cases.
