“We have shows coming up, so all of you guys, check the dates. Whatever show you’re going to, throw him some love and energy, man. He needs you more than ever.”

“It feels so good to be back, y’all. Some of you might know, some of you don’t, but I’m recovering,” Jonathan told the crowd. “I got COVID, and that shit kicked my motherfucking ass. But I decided I’m not gonna fucking cancel.
“So I might be standing up, I might be sitting in my chair, but I’m gonna give you a hundred motherfucking percent. So let’s scream and have a good motherfucking time tonight.”
