Legendary Rocker Says COVID Precautions are ‘Pseudoscience’, Demands Live Music’s Return

His opinions wasn’t all that popular, however…even among fans.

There are a number of industries here in the United States that have been unduly affected by the global coronavirus pandemic, as the need for social distancing has completely obliterated any sort of business where gathering is a prerequisite.

This means that restaurants, sports venues, nightclubs, and music venues are essentially shut down for the time being, as the world waits patiently for a vaccine or surefire treatment for COVID-19.

Now, one of the world’s preeminent songwriters is lashing out against the these precautions, blasting them as unnecessary.

Van Morrison has denounced the supposed “pseudoscience” around coronavirus and is attempting to rally musicians in a campaign to restore live music concerts with full capacity audiences.

The 74-year-old Northern Irish singer launched a campaign to “save live music” on his website, saying socially distanced gigs were not economically viable. “I call on my fellow singers, musicians, writers, producers, promoters and others in the industry to fight with me on this. Come forward, stand up, fight the pseudo-science and speak up,” he said.

Morrison is due to play socially distanced gigs in England next month, but he said this did not signify agreement with restrictions to curb the Covid-19 pandemic, which has claimed more than 800,000 lives worldwide.

It was no surprise that the vaunted songsmith’s statement on the matter was brutally worded.

“This is not a sign of compliance or acceptance of the current state of affairs, this is to get my band up and running and out of the doldrums. This is also not the answer going forward. We need to be playing to full capacity audiences going forward.”

Morrison has received plenty of backlash for his comments, even from his die-hard fans.
