Ryan’s Blog: Ticketmaster Working To Verify Vaccination Status

With a COVID vaccine making progress, the concert industry is preparing for a potential return of live events in coming months.

Ticketmaster just announced in order for fans to attend concerts in the future they may have to provide proof of a negative COVID test.

Billboard reports the plan would involve the Ticketmaster app in partnership with medical information firms.

Fans would be required to either verify through the app that they had been vaccinated or prove they tested negative for the virus within 72 hours prior to the event.

“If other safety procedures were in place like making sure within the environment, they had the separation of chairs and like they do, 6 feet I think that would be more appropriate,” said Kara Mann, a Toluca Lake resident and avid concert attender.

Ticketmaster said fans should not worry about their personal health information being permanently stored or shared.
