I saw the anti-vax protesters outside the theater and all I thought was oh boo-hoo for you. You poor pathetic, delusional people. You have every right in the world not go get vacinated, and you know what I hope you don't. Keep screaming until Covid gets you and then when you are on your death bed you can wear your MAGA hat and pray to Trump.
Someone with Covid needs to cough on these idiots.
Cough on me and watch what happens to you
You start to cry and beg for your mommy to stop the mean man?

Bruce Springsteen and Paul Simon to perform at Clive Davis’ Central Park Concert
By Carlos Greer
June 30, 2021
Clive Davis has snagged Bruce Springsteen and Paul Simon as headliners for Mayor Bill de Blasio’s post-COVID Central Park concert, Page Six has learned.
“Bruce will do a duet with Patti Smith,” an insider added, “Jennifer Hudson is also slated [to hit the stage].”
The concert — which is intended to celebrate New York City’s revival after the COVID-19 lockdowns — is set to take place on the Great Lawn on Aug. 21.
We’ve also learned that it will air on CNN. Davis — who is helping to produce the event — has previously said that eight “iconic” stars will perform a three-hour show to a crowd of 60,000.
“There will likely be … a sizeable percentage [of] artists of color. It’s likely going to be a four-hour show now,” the insider said.
Multiple sources told Page Six that Diana Ross had been approached in hopes of her repeating her iconic 1983 concert in Central Park, but she is not performing again until 2022. The diva is set to tour the UK and headline the Glastonbury Festival next summer.
Paul Simon, of course, also had an iconic concert at Central Park with Art Garfunkel in 1981.
Meanwhile, another source told us some celebrities were “a little uncomfortable” after they found out Davis had briefly hired Erich Bergen to handle the mega-concert. Bergen was sued in May for allegedly jeopardizing the “AIDS Walk: Live at Home” virtual telecast by holding a video he produced of honoree Sir Elton John’s acceptance speech “hostage.” A rep for the “Madame Secretary” actor — who’s also a video producer — told Page Six it was a “lie” at the time, but apparently, he’s still being buzzed about in the industry.
“Everyone [was] dealing with Erich … Celebrities [were] talking to Eric and getting emails from him. No one knows him. All they know is the Elton story,” the source said.
The insider confirmed that Bergen had been involved after helping Davis with his Grammy Zoom parties earlier this year. “One kind of led to the other,” they said. But now he’s been bumped from the project and “more major players are running it now” like Dick Clark Productions vet Patrick Menton and Live Nation.
Reps for Davis and the mayor’s office did not immediately get back to us.
I am personally put off by all the covid sniping here. I think it's inappropriate personally and reveals an attack ugliness that is better left to the sewer of weaponized Social Media than a rock and roll fan site. Just my feeling. Pretty ugly stuff. I'm surprised Any of it's here.
You get a Doctor who you trust is my feeling regarding this
As far as Bruce, I never listen which was a tough crucible for me. From Born to Run through the Next ten years at least, which is a startling major accomplishment in writing and even Guitar playing on his solo Lucky Town band tours...
So I was a huge fan and admirer. His politics and Anti depressant pushing on CBS and Etc.
I can't listen to anything by him.
And won't. Black Crowes carrying the rock and roll this Summer imo. I hope everybody stays well or gets well soon.
