  • Great White Play North Dakota Show With No Mask Restrictions in Place

Veteran rockers Great White took the stage in Dickinson, North Dakota Thursday night (July 9), playing to a crowd where there were no social distancing or masking restrictions in place.

Russell's band, Jack Russell's Great White has spent these months creating new music and videos while each artist recorded, worked and taped from their homes.

Woof. "We are not in a position to enforce the laws" is definitely true, but Great White was certainly in a position to tell the promoter that safety must be ensured if the band was to play. It's not clear whether Great White are saying they played the gig because they expected concertgoers to follow the state's recommendations - their statement's closing line, "We are far from ideal", indicates some remorse - and there's a bit of hedging to placate both sides. The statement, too, is far from ideal. Footage from the concert showed fans standing right next to each other without masks on, which the CDC now recommends to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

In the aftermath of the show, after receiving some backlash, Great White issued a statement to Blabbermouth that read: "We understand that there are some people who are upset that we performed this show, during this trying time". We guarantee you that we labored with the Promoter.

Although North Dakota health officials recommend social distancing and wearing masks, the state doesn't require it.

"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".

They continued, "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".

The message said: "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 ideal". Spin magazine posted video showing the crowd packed in and not wearing face masks. "We do not have restrictions, believe it or not, we don't have any", event coordinator April Getz told the newspaper. "We're leaving it up to everybody that chooses to attend".

"Great White would like to address our Thursday, July 9, at First on First Dickinson Summer Nights concert in North Dakota".

Russell and guitarist Mark Kendall founded GREAT WHITE in 1982. It's like, 'I took my mask off and I got COVID.' Well, what a big surprise that is.
