Superstar country musician Travis Tritt made a stand against venues mandating masks, vaccine passports or negative Covid tests in order to get into shows.
Tritt canceled concerts in Muncie, Indiana; Philadelphia, Mississippi; Peoria, Illinois; and Louisville, Kentucky.
Speaking with the Daily Wire, Tritt said, “I’m putting my money where my mouth is and announcing that any venue or promoter mandating masks, requiring vaccinations, or pushing COVID testing protocols on my fans will not be tolerated,” Tritt said in a statement sent to The Daily Wire. “Any show I have booked that discriminates against concert-goers by requiring proof of vaccination, a COVID test, or a mask is being canceled immediately.”
“Many people are taking a firm stand against these mandates around the country, and I wholeheartedly support that cause,” Tritt continued. “I have been extremely vocal against mandates since the beginning.”
The country star explained that he is happy to support freedom-loving business owners.
“This is a sacrifice that I’m willing to make to stand up for the freedoms that generations of Americans have enjoyed for their entire lifetimes. There are plenty of promoters and venues around the country that appreciate fans and the freedom of choice in this great country, and those are the promoters and venues that I will be supporting.”
“Let me be very clear. I’m not speaking out against vaccines. I’m speaking out against anyone forcing the vaccines on people who may not want or need them,” Tritt wrote on Twitter.
Let me be very clear. I’m not speaking out against vaccines. I’m speaking out against anyone forcing the vaccines on people who may not want or need them. 🇺🇸

Tritt also joined Louder With Crowder on Monday to discuss his stance.
He told Crowder, “We have to preserve our freedoms. We’ve never been in a situation in this country where the government has been able to force you to take medicine that you may or may not need.”

In July, guitar legend Eric Clapton made a similar announcement, telling fans he’d be canceling any shows at venues mandating vaccine passports during a 2022 tour.
Last month, comedian JP Sears also told followers he had to cancel some shows due to venues making attendees show proof of vaccination
Hopefully these performers are setting an example for others who may be considering speaking out but are afraid of backlash from the media and the establishment mob.
