Kid Rock says he will cancel dates at venues using COVID protocols

Kid Rock is scheduled to perform at the Nationwide Arena in April.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Kid Rock will soon be touring the country, but only at venues without COVID-19 protocols.

In a Facebook video released Thursday, Rock said several cities have already been removed from the tour list due to vaccine requirements and mask mandates. According to Rock, people who get tickets from venues with seats will "get your money back because I'm not showing up either."

Rock announced his 2022 Bad Reputation tour on Monday. He will make three stops in Ohio, including one for the Nationwide Arena in April. Currently, Nationwide Arena requires people to wear masks inside. The venue does not enforce any kind of vaccine mandate.

In the video, Rock said his group has researched which venues have restrictions. He said if a venue has restrictions, his group believes they will be lifted when Rock comes to town.

Gary O'Brien, communications director for Columbus Arena and Sports Entertainment, said the city still has a mask mandate that Nationwide Arena must follow.

Rock said that if there is a requirement to wear a mask or show proof of vaccination, he will not show up and customers will get their money back.

"If you think I'm going to sit out there and say, don 't tell me how to live,' We The People, 'while people are holding up their f-ing vaccine cards and wearing masks, it's (pronounced) t happens, "he said in the video.

'We The People' is a new song by Rock in which he profoundly criticizes President Joe Biden, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the Black Lives Matter movement and more. The song quickly skyrocketed to number one on iTunes.

Rock said he plans to release a new album, also titled Bad Reputation, sometime this year in conjunction with his 2022 tour. Tickets for the performances went on sale Friday morning at
