Vanilla Ice is encouraging individuals to deliver their ‘dancin sneakers’ and ‘Speedo’s’ to his Independence Day live performance in Texas, which simply hit a report with 8,000 new circumstances of coronavirus.

Vanilla Ice is again with a model new live performance and this time, followers aren’t appreciating the throwback. On June 24, the 52-year-old “Ice Ice Child” rapper introduced that he’ll be performing on the “Independence Day Throwback Seaside Celebration” on the Emerald Level Bar & Grill in Austin, Texas — one of many 4 states with probably the most reported coronavirus circumstances in the USA. “Prepare to return to The 90s, the best decade ever. Convey your dancin sneakers, Speedo’s, bikinis, neon colours and and ninja turtle gear… hahha,” Ice wrote underneath the live performance poster, seemingly oblivious to the pandemic that has claimed the lives of greater than 2,000 lives in Texas.

The venue is on the shore of Lake Travis, and is promoting as much as 2,500 tickets (priced between $25-$300), the Austin Chronicle reported. With the potential of two,500 individuals packed shoulder-to-shoulder, individuals weren’t too thrilled to listen to about Ice’s upcoming gig as soon as it began trending on July 1. On that very same day, the Texas Division of State Well being Companies reported 8,076 new coronavirus circumstances — a brand new single-day report for the virus scorching spot.

“Think about dying of the coronavirus since you went to a f–king Vanilla Ice live performance,” author Eric Francisco tweeted, whereas one other individual wrote, “For those who get COVID since you went to the Vanilla Ice live performance that someway is the exception to closure guidelines, frankly, you deserve that.” Followers imagine Ice couldn’t learn the room, contemplating that the state’s governor Greg Abbott simply ordered all bars to be closed and lowered restaurant capability to 50 % on June 26.

“Vanilla Ice is trending as a result of he’s throwing a live performance in Texas for the 4th of July. For those who go to this live performance and catch COVID, don’t ask anybody to cease, collaborate, and take heed to your dumba–,” one other fan tweeted, and one other individual mirrored that frustration: “Think about having to go on a ventilator bc you simply needed to see Vanilla Ice.”

In the meantime, Ice appears extra preoccupied with the ’90s. On June 28, he shared a throwback clip from a packed live performance and wrote, “I can’t wait to get again to this. The 90s have been the most effective. We didn’t have coronavirus, or cell telephones, or computer systems. we had 5.0‘s, blockbuster, Beavis and Butthead, Wayne’s world, Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan. And Mortal Kombat continues to be higher than fortnight however we received out of the home, We danced, we invented home events within the 90s. The final of the good a long time #IMissThenineties.”
