Musician Courtney Jaye shared a screenshot on Sunday of a message from an anonymous musician source alleging that due to a contract signed with Live Nation, they were unable to publicly announce that they tested positive for COVID-19. Today Live Nation shared a tweet denying that such a clause is in their contracts with artists.
“There is absolutely no Covid gag order in our contracts,” wrote the company. “We care about our employees, crew, fans and artists and will continue to meet the requirements of local health authorities when we host events.”
