Many concertgoers responded with disappointment and anger, with several people complaining over the short notice of the decision.
“Messy as hell cancelling something THE DAY OF,” commented one person. “Why not yesterday? The day before that? Y’all are wrong as hell for that one.”
“What a let down to the fans the day of the concert you cancel the concert because of Covid-19 in Florida,” wrote another. “But this tour has been having performers and crew infected with COVID-19 previously.”
“Wtf this is so messed up why the day of?” said another.
