With DOKKEN playing a concert in a few weeks in Arkansas, Don Dokken has expressed his concern over the negligence of people.
Here’s what Don said to RushOnRock:
“The Arkansas venue has staged at least two concerts there already with six-feet social distancing in an open field, and I’ve been assured that it will be safe.”
“They check everybody’s temperature going into the show, and we won’t be having any contact with people outside of our group. There’s more of a risk from me contracting COVID-19 as a result of flying. I know that’s a risk, but in this case, I’m prepared to take it.
“This thing isn’t going anywhere fast and we can’t shut ourselves away forever,” he continued.
“But people are stupid, as far as I’m concerned. All this protesting and marching with no masks on meant the virus was bound to spike. Everyone’s suddenly going to the beaches again without any social distancing.
“The scientists warned everybody what would happen,” Don added.
“They told us that if we didn’t wear masks and stick to social distancing, then this would be a big problem. And we’ve got an idiot president who won’t even wear a mask. When the president of your own country won’t wear a mask, what message does that send out to everyone else?
“I understand that people are frustrated. But we have to do this properly or it won’t go away anytime soon.”
