Singer-songwriter Maggie Rogers says that she has noticed more people passing out and having panic attacks at her gigs after the Covid-19 pandemic.
Rogers recently kicked off her “Feral Joy tour” of the United States in support of last year’s Surrender LP.
“So something is happening on this tour that we have never ever experienced before,” Rogers said in a video message posted on social media, “which is that we’re seeing more people than ever either pass out or have panic attacks in the audience”.
She added, “Obviously it’s been a really long time since we’ve been in crowds, and concerts may not be the most natural space after the couple years we’ve spent in the pandemic, and I’ve never been more grateful to the community around my music for the way they’ve been taking care of each other.”
Rogers asked her fans to “stay hydrated, try not to lock your knees if you’re standing for a really long time, take some breaks, and just do everything you can to keep everyone safe and healthy around you.”
