”With video footage clearly showing social distancing and safety precautions ignored, the recent ’Safe & Sound’ Chainsmokers charity concert in Southampton mocks New Yorkers’ months-long work to flatten the curve and contain the virus,” Howard A Zucker writes.
”Videos from a concert held in Southampton on Saturday show egregious social distancing violations. I am appalled,” wrote NY governor Andrew Cuomo on Twitter. ”The Department of Health will conduct an investigation. We have no tolerance for the illegal & reckless endangerment of public health.”
Over 600 artists are participating, including Beck & Cage the Elephant, Elvis Costello & The Imposters and Blondie, Vampire Weekend, Mary J Blige and Nas, The Black Keys, Heart, The 1975, Coheed and Cambria and Mastodon, Flatbush Zombies and Joey Bada$$, and more.
