NY Governor Mad at the Chainsmokers for 'Super Spreader' Concert

The Chainsmokers find themselves in the crosshairs of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

The duo performed Saturday night in the Hamptons. They dubbed their outdoor charity concert the “Safe & Sound Drive-In.” However, social media posts reveal that carloads of people crowded the stage. Absolutely no physical distancing in the pit. Few wore masks.

Governor Cuomo tweeted Monday evening “Videos from a concert held in Southampton on Saturday show egregious social distancing violations. I am appalled. The Department of Health will conduct an investigation.”

Several concert-goers told BuzzFeed they felt “very safe” attending Saturday night's show. The state limits non-essential events to 50 people. More than 3000 attended The Chainsmokers concert and paid $850 for the privilege. (BuzzFeed)

The after-party attracted 200 people at a private residence where the drinking and dancing continued into the early morning hours. (New York Post)
