that's well and good

however i saw wells many times talk down this disease and never encourage people to wear masks. he supports the right wing retrumplicans line that this is a fake disease and our rights are being taken away. this man would not know about rights if they came notarized.

this will

become a super covid spreader event!!. because wells is a anti mask covid denier!!!

Live Nation is asking people to wear face masks:

From the ticketing website for this concert: "Face coverings are strongly recommended for fans who are not fully vaccinated, unless actively eating or drinking, per CDC guidelines."

Some other local theaters are requiring masks at indoor performances now, but apparently not at The Magnolia.
