Live Nation To Require Proof Of Full COVID-19 Vaccination Or Negative COVID-19 Test Result For Artists & Attendees At All Upcoming Shows


A recently leaked internal memo from Live Nation revealed that the company were planning to adopt a new safety policy. That then proposed policy would allow artists to choose whether or not a full COVID-19 vaccination or proof of a recent negative COVID-19 test result would be required for admittance to upcoming shows put on by the company, as well as shows at Live Nation-owned venues. That memo also stated that as of October 04th all of the company’s employees would require a full COVID-19 vaccination to visit their events, venues or offices.

Amid another uptick in COVID-19 cases, Live Nation have now officially adopted a stricter blanket approach, with proof of a full COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result taken within days of the event now being mandatory for admittance for both fans and artists where applicable by law.

Live Nation Entertainment president and CEO Michael Rapino said in a statement of the move:

“Vaccines are going to be your ticket back to shows, and as of October 4th we will be following the model we developed for Lollapalooza and requiring this for artists, fans and employees at Live Nation venues and festivals everywhere possible in the US.”

This new policy will go into effect on Monday, October 04th. If you’re unsure whether or not this will impact you in the coming months, you can find a list of venues Live Nation oversees here. Live Nation are also involved in a number of the biggest U.S. metal and rock tours this fall, including:
