'Egregious' distancing violations at Hamptons charity concert - Cuomo Jul 28, 2020
 

New York governor says event featuring Goldman Sachs CEO and Chainsmokers breached Covid-19 rules

New York health authorities are to investigate a charity concert in the Hamptons, which included performances by the Goldman Sachs chief David Solomon and DJ duo the Chainsmokers, over “egregious” social distancing violations.

The drive-in event, Safe & Sound, had space for about 600 cars and was held in Southampton village on Saturday. It was the first in a series of such concerts planned for the US, according to the organisers’ website.

Solomon, who goes by the DJ name D-Sol, performed for an hour. “The group that put this together did an incredible job in a difficult environment,” he said in an interview with Bloomberg.

However, the New York governor condemned the gig. “Videos from a concert held in Southampton on Saturday show egregious social distancing violations,” Andrew Cuomo tweeted. “I am appalled.”

The organisers said they collaborated with all state and local health officials and the concert followed the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidelines.

New York has been one of the worst coronavirus-affected regions in US, with more deaths than any other state.

Cuomo permitted limited and phased reopenings in the state from mid-May, according to the New York Times.

Profits from the event, for which tickets cost up to $25,000 (£19,000), will go to several local charities, according to Billboard.
