"We didn't have coronavirus, or cell phones, or computers", he wrote in an Instagram post earlier this week. As of Wednesday (July 1), the state has reported almost 8,000 new cases of COVID-19 and 21 additional deaths.
"I can't wait to get back to this", the "Ice Ice Baby" singer posted on Instagram along with some of his previous packed concert footage. 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 52-year-old rapper (real name Rob Van Winkle) took to his social media to share a video to make the announcement that they will be postponing the show.
In the video, however, the Dallas-born performer said that the show had been booked well in advance and that he'd been hoping the numbers would be better by now.
Not just because of coronavirus, but like... if you're going to risk your life, don't do it for Vanilla Ice.
Vanilla Ice may want to stop, collaborate and listen regarding his planned holiday weekendconcert.
His show, entitled the Independence Day Throwback Beach Party, grew widespread criticism when it was announced Wednesday. "But it turned into a big focal point on me, and it's not about that ... hopefully by New Years, this corona crap will have a cure!" "The last of the great decades #IMissThenineties".
In a video posted on Twitter this afternoon (July 2), the rapper explained that after listening to his fans and looking into the coronavirus numbers in Texas, he won't be hitting the stage after all.
Texas governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order last Friday ordering all bars closed, but Emerald Point Bar & Grill, where the concert will be held, derives more than 51% of its income from food and is therefore categorized as a restaurant, meaning it can stay open at half capacity.
The website for the Emerald Point Bar & Grille reveals that, besides Friday's Vanilla Ice cancellation, a Saturday show headlined by Color Me Badd has also been canceled. Only 84 tickets had been sold before the online ticket broker suspended sales, Brannam said.
