Gov. J.B. Pritzker defends last-minute decision to skip Lollapalooza in light of delta variant spread: ‘There’s no mixed message’
Pritzker less than two weeks ago said that he and his wife, M.K., planned to attend the massive festival, which drew roughly 100,000 concertgoers per day to Chicago’s Grant Park. “I think it’s OK, but again, people need to be aware that we are not past this pandemic. It is with us,” he said at the time.
