The Chainsmokers' Hamptons Drive-In Concert Is Being Investigated by Gov. Cuomo's Office

The Chainsmokers performed a Drive-In concert in the Hamptons over the weekend and now the event is under investigation by New York State Governor Cuomo’s office.

The concert, which was billed as the “Safe & Sound Drive-In” show, was a fundraiser and even featured a performance from Southampton’s Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman’s band.

While there were “safe zones” for cars with up to six people, Page Six reports that posts on social media showed that lots of fans left their cars and gathered in front of the stage without masks.

Page Six obtained a latter that state health commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker sent to Schneiderman.

“I am greatly disturbed by reports concerning the ‘drive-in’ concert held in your town this past weekend, which apparently involved thousands of people in close proximity, out of their vehicles, a VIP area where there was no pretense of a vehicle, and generally not adhering to social distancing guidance,” Zucker said in the letter. “I am at a loss as to how the Town of Southampton could have issued a permit for such an event, how they believed it was legal and not an obvious public health threat.”

Zucker is demanding answers from Schneiderman with 24 hours and he said, “Please be advised that all responses to these questions are a submission to a state department conducting an investigation, and any submission will be deemed to be a sworn statement.”

Schneiderman told Page Six, “This was a charitable event… I am as upset as anyone else.” He says his office will respond to Zucker by the end of day on Tuesday.
