Kid Rock says he won’t play any venues with COVID-19 vaccination requirements on his recently announced Bad Reputation tour.

In a Facebook video, the “Bawitdaba” singer says, “There’s been a lot of talk about vaccine mandates and people saying, ‘I’m not going to that venue ’cause there’s a vaccine mandate.'”

“We’ve done all our research on this, and the consensus says that all this is gonna be done,” Rock says. “If there are any of these venues, I’m not aware of any, but if there any [vaccine requirements], they’re gonna be gone by the time we get to your city.”

Rock did not share the specifics of his “research,” but adds if any venue on the tour does enforce a vaccine requirement for his show, he “won’t be showing up either.”

“If you think I’m gonna sit out there and sing ‘Don’t Tell Me How to Live’ and ‘We the People’ while people are holding up their f***ing vaccine cards and wearing masks, that s*** ain’t happening,” Rock says.

“We the People,” which was released earlier this week, finds Rock yelling obscenities at Dr. Anthony Fauci and cheering “Let’s Go Brandon,” a conservative code for swearing at President Joe Biden.

The Bad Reputation tour, which features support from Foreigner, Grand Funk Railroad and Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening, kicks off in April.

Last August, Rock canceled a pair of shows after “over half” of his band tested positive for COVID-19. At the time, he said he and “many” of his band members were vaccinated.
