Before Any Performance Tour, Australia Wants Kanye West To Be Properly Immunized!

Kanye West, the hip-hop musician, will need to be fully vaccinated if he wants to perform in Australia, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on Saturday, following reports that he was planning an Australian tour in March.

The warning comes only two weeks after tennis legend Novak Djokovic’s chances of winning a Grand Slam were crushed when a judge supported the government’s decision to revoke his visa due to COVID-19 guidelines and his lack of vaccination.

“The guidelines state that you must be completely immunized,” Morrison said during a press conference. “They apply to everyone, as recent events have demonstrated. They are the rules, regardless of who you are. If you follow the guidelines, you are welcome to visit. You can’t because you don’t follow the rules.”

Morrison’s comments came after the Sydney Morning Herald reported on Friday, citing industry insiders, that West intended to perform stadium concerts in Australia in March. West’s representatives were not immediately available for comment, even though his newest album, “Donda,” was published in July. West, a 2020 presidential contender in the United States, has not been vaccinated.

He claimed to have had one vaccine shot in a 2021 interview on social media, yet in a 2020 interview with business magazine Forbes, he labelled vaccination “the mark of the beast.”

With almost 2 million cases reported in the previous month, Australia, one of the most widely vaccinated countries against COVID-19, has been facing an explosive surge of infections caused by the fast-spreading Omicron form. Since the epidemic began nearly two years ago, there had only been 400,000 cases.

After Friday’s pandemic death toll of 98, 97 individuals perished on Saturday. Hospital admissions, on the other hand, have been plateauing or declining in numerous states, according to health experts.
