"Hey guys, I wanted to give you a little update about the concert in Austin".

"Basically, I'm not going", he says. I listened to my fans, I hear all you people out there, I didn't know the numbers were so insane in Austin.

In the video, however, the Dallas-born performer said that the show had been booked well in advance and that he'd been hoping the numbers would be better by now.

The Emerald Point Bar & Grill's website makes no mention of social distancing or hygiene precautions that will be taken to prevent concertgoers from becoming infected with the virus. So anyway, happy 4th of July, and hopefully by New Year's this corona crap will have a cure!

The concert was selling 2,500 tickets which is about half of the venue's capacity.

On Thursday he posted a video of a group of musicians busking.

Ellen's production company, however, denied these rumours, saying to the New York Post , "Telepictures can confirm it's untrue". TVNewsCheck's figures showed that " The Ellen DeGeneres Show " Season 17 dropped 14% to a 1.2 rating.

His decision is notable only because four hours before announcing the cancellation, Vanilla Ice had been defending the wisdom of drawing a crowd to the Emerald Point Bar & Grill, an outdoor venue.

Vanilla Ice may want to stop, collaborate and listen regarding his planned holiday weekendconcert. Gov. Greg Abbott closed bars and placed limits on large gatherings last week, but the rapper's Austin concert is being allowed under a loophole, the Austin Chronicle reports.

Another '90s act, Color Me Badd, was also supposed to perform at the Emerald Point on Saturday, but that show was also rescheduled. The scheduled concert had local health officials in an uproar, given that the state hit a new record of confirmed cases of the coronavirus on Wednesday. We didn't have coronavirus, or cell phones, or computers. we had 5.0's, blockbuster, Beavis and Butthead, Wayne's world, Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan.

I can't wait to get back to this. The last of the great decades, ' he concluded, with the hashtag #IMissTheNineties. "The 90s were the best", said Vanilla Ice in a recent Instagram post. "'Mortal Kombat" is still better than 'Fortnight" [sic] ... the last of the great decades". We didn't have coronavirus, or cell phones, or computers. we had 5.0's, blockbuster, Beavis and Butthead, Wayne's world, Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan.

He shared yet another video from a packed show, which even featured one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on stage, where he added, "I can't wait to get back to this" with hashtags #BlocParty #YoVIPLet'sKickIt #GetItHowYouLiveIt.
