CHEYENNE, Wyo. — You will likely be required to show proof of vaccination against the coronavirus if you are going to be attending a concert in Colorado in the near future.
According to AEG Presents, the company will be requiring proof of vaccination for entry into its owned and operated clubs, theatres, and festivals, starting on Oct. 1, 2021. In Colorado, those venues include the 1stBank Center, the Bluebird Theater, Fiddler’s Green, Mission Ballroom, the Gothic Theater and the Ogden Theater.
“The decision comes on the heels of the dramatic surge in COVID-19 cases as the Delta variant spreads throughout the United States. AEG Presents is either an owner or partner in such iconic venues and festivals as New York’s Webster Hall and Brooklyn Steel, The Roxy and El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles, The Theatre at Resorts World Las Vegas, Firefly Music Festival, Day N Vegas, The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, and Coachella Music & Arts Festival, among others,” AEG Presents stated in their announcement.
Leading up to October 1, AEG Presents will be implementing a policy of showing proof of vaccination — or a negative COVID test taken within 72 hours of the show date — where permitted.
“The date was chosen specifically to allow time for any eligible unvaccinated ticketholders and staff to reach fully vaccinated status should they choose to do so,” officials went on to say.
