Quiet Riot is ready to rock you--just stay at least six feet apart. Drummer Frankie Banali made the big reveal during an interview with Eddie Trunk on his Trunk Nation radio show. Banali told the host that the band alongside co-headliners Molly Hatchet and Blackfoot had been approved to perform for 3000 fans on the July 4, 2020 at the Magic Springs Theme And Water Park, located in Hot Springs, Arkansas.

“I'm still waiting to see what's gonna happen," Banali did caution. "Because you don't know if two weeks out, or a week out, before the show, all of a sudden, that part of Arkansas gets shut down, locked down, the show is canceled or postponed to another date. And in the meantime, you have expenses — flights and hotels and all this kind of nonsense that you have to deal with."

Banali, who has been fighting stage IV pancreatic cancer, insists that the band is taking all precautions about getting back in front of fans.

“We just really haven't been out of the house with the exception of going into my doctor's to get treatments," the 68-year-old drummer explained. "I have to be very, very careful, because I'm in the age group, and because of serious underlying conditions, I'm at the top of the list that if I did get coronavirus, I probably would not survive it.”

According to a post on the Magic Springs Theme And Water Park website: "At this time the Riots & Rebels Tour featuring Quiet Riot, Molly Hatchet & Blackfoot scheduled for Saturday, July 4th is are going forward as planned. To ensure everyone's enjoyment it is highly recommended that concert attendees bring blankets as social distancing guidelines of six feet will be enforced. We ask your assistance in self-distancing your group from others."
