Smash Mouth’s proving they might still be All-Stars — 2 decades after their biggest hit — but based on their appearance at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally … they’re not exactly the sharpest tools in the shed.
Hundreds, if not thousands, of rowdy and excited bikers threw coronavirus caution to the wind Sunday night in South Dakota, and packed an outdoor venue to watch Smash Mouth perform.
The band’s frontman, Steve Harwell, told the crowd at one point … “We’re all here together tonight! F**k that COVID s**t!”
Though the venue, The Buffalo Chip, was reportedly at half capacity — and Smash Mouth’s manager says the promoter did a “fantastic job” with COVID-19 protocol — video of the event seems to tell a different story.
As you can see … attendees didn’t seem to give a damn about wearing masks or practicing physical distancing as they prepared to take in Smash Mouth’s hit tracks such as “Walkin’ on the Sun” and “Can’t Get Enough of You Baby.”
Of course, the same carefree and reckless behavior went down Saturday night as Sturgis folks packed the Full Throttle Saloon as well.
City officials are expecting around 250,000 people to attend this year’s convention and though it’s been jam-packed. from the jump, preventative measures are suggested but not required. The event lasts through next weekend.
