Steve Aoki partied like it was 2019 Friday night, because there was absolutely no evidence of a pandemic.
The famed DJ headlined at WTR Tampa Pool inside the Godfrey Waterfront Hotel, in front of a massive, mostly maskless crowd … you see a few masks, but that’s about it. As for social distancing … haha.
Steve broke open bottles of bubbly and sprayed the crowd, zeroing in on a few folks who got special attention and a giant gulp of champagne.
The show lasted for hours … from midnight to 3 AM Saturday in the rollup to the Super Bowl.
There’s lots more in store. Migos will play a day party Saturday followed by concerts by Diplo and 50 Cent later in the evening.
The event producers tried keeping everything COVID safe with various demands … “Social distancing procedures will be strictly enforced, face masks will be required for all staff & guests, wellness and temperature checks will be mandatory for entrance, sanitizing stations will be placed throughout the venue, and continued cleaning protocols will provide regular sanitizing.”
Tory Lanez had a big bash Thursday night at the same venue … again, it was packed to the gills with almost no masks in sight, and forget social distancing.
For what it’s worth … Dr. Fauci urged everyone to cancel Super Bowl LV parties … worrying they’d become super-spreader events. Apparently, message not received.
