State Health Commish Lambastes Southampton Town Over Charity Chainsmokers Concert

New York State’s top health official wants answers from Southampton Town officials about why a drive-in fundraiser concert, called “Safe & Sound” and featuring the Grammy-award winning Chainsmokers, was ever allowed to take place Saturday given all the state regulations in place to address the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

In a letter sent to Supervisor Jay Schneiderman, Dr. Howard Zucker said he was “greatly disturbed” by reports of the Bridgehampton concert, “which apparently involved thousands of people in close proximity, out of their vehicles, a VIP area where there was no pretense of a vehicle, and generally not adhering to social guidance.”
