Vanilla Ice Postpones Concert Amid Backlash & Rising Coronavirus Cases

Vanilla Ice is holding off on that concert, after all.

The 52-year-old entertainer revealed that he is postponing his much-criticized concert amid rising coronavirus cases, which prompted backlash earlier in the week.

“Due to the increase in COVID-19 numbers in Austin, we’re gonna move the concert to a better date. We were hoping for better Coronavirus numbers by July but Unfortunately the numbers have increased quite a bit so for the safety and health of everyone we’re going to stay home,” Vanilla Ice said on Twitter on Thursday (July 2).

Vanilla Ice was previously following in the footsteps of country singer Chase Rice, who was called out for hosting a concert last week with no social distancing rules in place.
