    I’ll go with “infected band member performs in a room backstage and is added to the mix and brought in via camera while the rest of the band plays on stage”.

    And then I will hope that I am wrong because it’s a really messed up idea.

    Being at the Gorge last week for Phish and seeing this now from home, wow, I think I chose the right weekend. But truly hope this doesn't affect much for our friends out in Washington.

    I will be pretty peeved if it is a "live stream" with the band performing backstage with it streamed to the screens.

    If this is the case, maybe the silver lining is they realize they could start doing couch tours for future tours?

    Maybe "alternate format" is the name of their latest song?

    Individuals who are fully vaccinated are still getting the virus so this doesn't really make sense. Unless you are just trying to find a reason to hate the band, then carry on...

    The emoji they used is the sarcastic emoji, so yeah, I think they were just satirizing the folks that would use this as a litmus test.

    Holograms for sure. If they're on stage I bet it's just going to be further distanced than usual, possible barriers between, gloves for those who can wear them and possibly masks. Or if it's a bandmember in particular maybe it'll be minus that instrument which could be interesting

    I think it's more of the fact that you, a person who has posted on this website 1 time before today 3 years ago asking if uppers were still available, is telling us to mark your words and that you are done with the band. No one knows who the fuck you are

    Does she still pop around here? Last time I saw her was about two years ago in the Prudential Mall in Boston, MA. The most random run-in I've had.

    Where did I say you couldn't have an opinion? I just find it odd that a random user would pop in after this news to announce the pending to his fandom on a site he doesn't actively participate on.
