RED BLUFF, Calif. – Coronavirus cases continue to soar. Despite the spiking numbers, a popular bar planned to have a live concert.

“People are tired of the control that's being put on them,” said Sarah Berens of Red Bluff.

“Businesses going out of business because they can't operate. I can't say whether I approve of what they're doing or not, but I can't blame them for doing it.”

The Palomino Room promoting the concert in a Facebook post, inviting people to buy VIP tickets so they can avoid the crowds at the bar.

“I didn't know they were going to be doing that,” said Mary Gates of Red Bluff. “I don't think anyone that's not in your household should be someplace you're around.”

“That's probably why we're going to have the curfew,” said Tel Guillen of Red Bluff. “People like that are the ones making us have a curfew.”

Action News Now reached out to Carlos Zapata, the owner of the Palomino Room, but he refused to comment on Friday night’s live show.

Several people tell Action News Now they think businesses should obey the rules but understand the bar’s reasoning.

“I think they need to follow the regulations,” said Nancy Brown of Red Bluff. “But then that's his business, so he has a right to do what he thinks is right as well.”

But others fear this could become a super spreader event making an already bad situation worse.

“They're doing it all over the country and it’s not wise to do that's why it's spreading the way it’s spreading,” said Gates.

Action News Now reached out to Tehama County Public Health who says the agency was unaware of a live show. But does an educational approach to help get businesses under compliance.
