    Also, as horrible as COVID-19 is, I don't think Great White has enough of a fanbase that a 1% to 5% fatality rate (I think it's under 1% considering that recent studies estimate that 35% of cases are asymptomatic) is going to surpass the 100 deaths in that 2003 nightclub fire. But even so, the point of the OP is true. Doing this is likely to keep racking up a body count as a result of their live shows. They may have a different manager now, but it seems that the bad decisions just keep on coming.

    He seems like a nice guy, but his voice is as exciting as yesterday's warmed-up ham

    I remember when that awful fire happened, and I remember discussing with my bandmates at the time certain venues we would no longer play in town because they were similar death traps.

    At the same time, it's a great argument against having that Auralex stuff up on your walls in your studio room. Massive fire hazard, and foam like that is why the venue GW played at went up in flames so quickly.

    That looks really bad, seems like the US has a very high proportion of stupid people. I expect the Darwin Awards are going to be wild this year.

    Viral load seems to be an important factor with regards to the illness you develop, so standing that close together would be very unwise if someone is yelling and shedding virus left and right, although they were outside. Looks like the median age of the audience was fairly high as well...

    Well yeah, that and using pyrotechnics in a venue not legally allowed to use them. Crazy how bad the evacuation setup was as well

    Crooks actually noted that when I was getting sound treatments for my old studio. There are types that you can get that are fire resistant. The cheaper stuff tends not to be.
