With concerts still on hiatus, Vanilla Ice was hoping to take advantage of people’s need for live music with a show planned for this Friday in Texas. However, after some backlash online, the 90’s icon has decided to postpone his show for a later day. Though many were hoping to spend their Fourth of July weekend with Vanilla Ice, it seems that dream will have to wait.

Vanilla Ice, like many others, wants live music back in his life. The rapper recently posted in Instagram saying, “I can't wait to get back to this. The 90s were the best. We didn't have coronavirus, or cell phones, or computers.” However, his attempt to return the stage before many others was put on halt this week, as his show planned for this weekend in Austin, Texas has been cancelled.

“This date has been canceled and will be rescheduled for another time," said a rep for the event. While the makeup date is unknown, it may have to wait a year if Vanilla Ice wants to keep the Fourth of July theme. His fans will just have to find something else to do this weekend.
