Trixter guitarist Steve Brown spoke to “The Rock N Ragni Show” about the fact that he was supposed to be part of Def Leppard’s stadium tour this summer.
“Big concerts, nothing is coming back at least a year, if that. And I’m just being honest, because there’s a lot of people who are, like, ‘Oh, we’re doing this.’ Every tour that’s postponed till next year, that’s 50/50 at this point. So the sooner everybody gets used to online stuff and not seeing live shows, the better off you’re gonna be.
Because [when] everybody rushes out to do this, the numbers go up and it just f*cks everything up. Get out there, don’t be idiots, wear a mask, do whatever the rules are, and we’ll be better. But sadly, big rock shows — I was supposed to be a part of ‘The Stadium Tour’ with Def Leppard this summer — and look, man, it ain’t happening. And nothing big is gonna happen until there is a 200% guaranteed vaccine for this.”
Brown also discussed the possibility of playing smaller shows with temperature checks at the door.
“PJ [Farley, Trixter bassist] and I play with Eric Martin from Mr. Big, and we were supposed to play outside Pittsburgh in two weeks, but it got too weird. It’s just not right, man. It’s not the right time. And we were all kind of just going,
‘We don’t feel good about this.’ The time is not right. And you have to be respectful of everything. And there’s too many people who wanna rush to get back to normal. It’s never gonna be back to the way it was; everything’s different.”
