Kanye West must ‘be fully vaccinated’ before any concert tour in Australia

Kanye West, the hip-hop artist, will need to be fully vaccinated if he wants to perform in Australia, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said, following reports that the performer was planning an Australian tour in March.

The warning came only two weeks after tennis legend Novak Djokovic's chances of winning a Grand Slam were crushed when a judge supported the government's decision to revoke his visa due to Covid-19 regulations and his lack of vaccinations.

"The guidelines state that you must be completely immunized," Morrison said during a press conference.

"As people have recently seen, they apply to everyone." They are the rules, regardless of who you are. If you follow the guidelines, you are welcome to visit. You can't because you don't follow the rules."

Morrison's comments came after the Sydney Morning Herald reported on Friday, citing industry sources, that West planned to perform stadium concerts in Australia in March.

West's representatives were not immediately available for comment, despite the fact that his last album, Donda, was published in July.

West, a 2020 presidential candidate in the United States, has not been vaccinated.

He claimed to have had one vaccine shot in a 2021 interview on social media, yet in a 2020 interview with business magazine Forbes, he labeled vaccination "the mark of the beast."

With over 2-million cases reported in the previous month, Australia, one of the most frequently vaccinated countries against Covid-19, has been battling an explosive wave of illnesses caused by the fast-spreading Omicron form.

Since the pandemic began nearly two years ago, there had only been 400,000 cases.

After Friday's pandemic death toll of 98, 97 people perished on Saturday. Hospital admissions, on the other hand, have been plateauing or declining in numerous states, according to health officials.
