Pop-punk group selling $ 18 concert tickets for the vaccinated, nearly $ 1,000 for the unvaccinated in St. Petersburg
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (WFLA) – A pop-punk group is making noise over their bounty of getting the shot to attend their concert in St. Petersburg.
Teenage Bottlerocket recently announced a tour of the United States, which includes a stop at VFW Post # 39 in St. Petersburg. The group offers tickets at $ 18 if you are fully vaccinated but charges $ 999.99 per ticket if you are not vaccinated.
Ticket buyers must bring their government issued ID and COVID-19 vaccination record.
“You will need to have received your second injection of Pfizer or Moderna, or your only injection of Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccine on 6/12/2021 or before.” The group said on its website.
The group noted that if you don’t bring your vaccination card, you will not be admitted at the cheapest rate.
Also be aware that if you purchase any of these tickets in advance and show up without your vaccination card or government issued photo ID, you will not be admitted at this price, you will have to pay the remaining $ 981.99 to enter or come back and get your card. There will be NO REFUND. We are NOT telling you what to do here, we make a business decision and let the market decide. If anyone wants come unvaccinated, it will frighten a large number of clients and will have to pay the difference. ”
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed an executive order in Arpil waiving the requirement that people show proof of a COVID-19 vaccine in order to sponsor a business.
“It is totally unacceptable that the government or the private sector impose a requirement on you to show proof of vaccine just to be able to participate in normal society,” DeSantis said in March.
For months, the governor has made it clear that there will be no coronavirus vaccine mandate, as he leaves it up to Floridians to decide whether they want to be vaccinated.
