Sean Feucht Moves Ahead With New Year's Eve Concerts in LA Despite COVID-19 Rules

Worship leader Sean Feucht is moving ahead with his controversial three-day New Year's celebration in Los Angeles. Feucht and his followers have planned a "massive outreach" effort for the homeless population on LA's Skid Row for Wednesday night (Dec. 30), as well as one Thursday morning in Echo Park followed by a New Year's Eve party-turned-concert in Valencia, Calif., that evening, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Feucht's concerts have often involved maskless worshippers who sang and danced together in outdoor-yet-tightknit spaces as a way to push back against restrictions on religious gatherings during the pandemic. 

Pastors and other church leaders in the area have asked Feucht not to come, worried that the influx of fans could bring great harm to the homeless people of Los Angeles, where the virus continues to wreak havoc.

"We know based on his track record whatever he's going to do is going to be maskless," Church Without Walls pastor Stephen "Cue" Jn-Marie told the Los Angeles Times. "The problem we're facing is even prior to the stay-at-home order, people come into the community and say they're bringing resources but what they're bringing is the disease."

Los Angeles County Supervisor Hilda Solis said she's instructed the Department of Public Health to respond to Feucht's concerts, which will take place throughout the week in recognition of the new year.

"I am aware and highly concerned of the planned events and have asked our Department of Public Health to look into this matter. Since this is in the jurisdiction of the City of Los Angeles, I've also referred the matter to the City Attorney's office," Solis told CBS Los Angeles
