One of the country’s biggest concert promoters has announced it will require proof of vaccination from all concertgoers and staff members.
The requirement will affect shows at dozens of venues and music festivals run by AEG Presents, the company reveals in a statement issued Thursday. Among AEG’s iconic properties are Webster Hall in New York, The Roxy and El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles, the Coachella Music and Arts Festival, and The Theatre at Resorts World in Las Vegas.
“Just a few weeks ago, we were optimistic about where our business, and country, were heading,” says COO Jay Marciano. “The Delta variant, combined with vaccine hesitancy, is pushing us in the wrong direction again.”
