After playing a gig in North Dakota which lead to a massive backlash among fans, some even calling the band stupid and threatening the health of all people who attended the concert, the band has now apologized.
Earlier tonight, GREAT WHITE released the following statement to BLABBERMOUTH.NET via the band’s publicist:
Here’s the statement:
“GREAT WHITE would like to address our Thursday, July 9, at First On First Dickinson Summer Nights concert in North Dakota.
“We understand that there are some people who are upset that we performed this show, during this trying time. We assure you that we worked with the Promoter. North Dakota’s government recommends masks be worn, however, we are not in a position to enforce the laws.
“We have had the luxury of hindsight and we would like to apologize to those who disagree with our decision to fulfill our contractual agreement.
“The Promoter and staff were nothing but professional and assured us of the safety precautions.
“Our intent was simply to perform our gig, outside, in a welcoming, small town.
“We value the health and safety of each and every one of our fans, as well as our American and global community.
“We are far from perfect.”
