Pop-punk band Teenage Bottlerocket put a premium on a shot in the arm by charging almost $1,000 for the unvaccinated, but a mere $18 for those who have the COVID-19 vaccine. Their show, originally planned in St. Petersburg, recently moved to the Skatepark of Tampa and is sold out.
The band’s U.S. tour included a stop at St. Petersburg’s VFW Post No. 39, where they are charging $999.99 per ticket. There is a major discount, however, for fully vaccinated folks: Tickets for them will be just $18 in advance and $20 at the door.
With tickets selling briskly, the show was moved to the skatepark’s concert space on Columbus Drive in Tampa, and the show is sold out.
Ticket-buyers must bring their government-issued ID and their COVID-19 vaccination record card.
”You will need to have had your second shot of Pfizer or Moderna, or your single shot of Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccine on or before 6/12/2021,” the band said in a released statement.
The show is June 26, with Brooklyn-based punk band MakeWar and St. Petersburg’s Rutterkin as the openers.
