Despite the United States’ struggle to get ahold of the growing coronavirus pandemic cases and several tours across the country being canceled, DaBaby is reportedly scheduled to perform in Georgia this weekend.
On Thursday (July 2), reports surfaced online that the 2019 XXL Freshman would be performing in Decatur, Ga. during Fourth of July weekend. A flyer for the event was posted on Eventbrite, where fans can also purchase tickets to see the Kirk rapper perform alongside Moneybagg Yo and Blac Youngsta at the Cosmopolitan Premier Lounge on Saturday (July 4).
“J Hart Productions presents the 4th of July weekend concert Series with DaBaby Live Saturday,” the flyer reads. “July 4 and MoneyBagg Yo & Blac Youngsta July 5 at the all newly renovated Cosmopolitan located on Glenwood Dr.”
Ticket prices range from $50 for general admission to $2,500 for VIP treatment and bottle service. While the club has not put out any information about how they plan to prevent the spread of Covid-19 early bird GA tickets have sold out. The event is also taking place as Georgia coronavirus numbers begin to spike once again. According to a New York Times database, there have been at least 79,589 cases of coronavirus in Georgia. As of Thursday morning (July 2), at least more than 2,700 people had died due to the virus.
Georgia’s spike is attributed to the state’s choice to reopen ar before it was ready. Early last month, Georgia opened, making it the first state to resume despite rising numbers and the U.S.’ difficulty to slow transmission.
This show is set to take place after nearly four months of rappers not being able to tour. In April, Young Thug explained how he and other rappers stood to lose millions of dollars due to their halted tour schedules. The “Suge” rapper later made similar comments about how the virus had personally affected his bank account.
DaBaby, Moneybagg Yo and Blac Youngsta have yet to promo the show scheduled to take place later this week.
XXL has reached out to a rep for DaBaby, Moneybagg Yo and Blac Youngsta for a comment.
