Country Star Wins Lawsuit Against Venue That Tried to Force Vaccine Passport at His Concert

Country star John Rich recently boasted about winning a legal battle against a venue that tried to enforce a vaccine passport at one of his concerts.

According to the outspoken singer, he never played at venues that would require concert-goers to present vaccine passports or any “papers” in order to attend. Rich says that one venue tried to add the stipulation after he booked a show, so Rich canceled. At that point, the promoter sued the singer.

“During the lockdowns, I stated I’d NEVER play a concert venue that forced fans to show their ‘papers’ for entry concerning Covid,” Rich tweeted.

“One venue added that rule after I agreed to play, so I cancelled it. The promoter sued me. He LOST the case today! Happy to say I never bent the knee,” he continued.

Fans responded with reactions such as “thanks for standing up to tyranny” and “we all need to stand our ground,” but at least one alleged fan was not happy with apparently learning for the first time that Rich was not supportive of vaccine passports:

“I won’t be attending any of your concerts anytime soon. With that attitude, the likely attendees are going to be a concentrated group of anti-vaxxers,” the user replied declared.

“It sounds like a great place to catch Covid. To other John Rich fans: if you’re smart, you will stay away too,” the woman said.

“Sounds like a plan,” Rich simply responded.

Rich, 49, has been outspoken on many cultural topics in recent years. In 2021, he spoke out against ideologies that he said are seeking to erase what he and fellow country stars care about. This was in response to the Country Music Awards taking large steps towards championing equity, diversity, and inclusion.

“There are many conservative country music singers that just won’t say anything to push back against the ideologies that aim to erase what they care about,” Rich wrote on Twitter.

“Why? You know why. I hope soon we see them start to speak up. The country music industry is out of touch with the audience,” he added.

Rich has gone platinum four times with the band Big & Rich, most famous for the song “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy).”

    Hope that young lady that won’t be attending his concerts stays current on her death jabs. Her entitlement to tell others what to believe falls on deaf ears to those with brains and come from a position of strength. Covid was and still is a hoax though the demonrat left still are selling the death jab to kids. January 24th 2023 hospitals will stop Covid testing but still push the lie on children. They are shit for brains idiot sheep. Baahhh
