Jason Isbell announces COVID rules | Entertainment
Jason Isbell has made it mandatory that all members of the audience on his shows be vaccinated against COVID-19.
The 42-year-old singer has threatened to withdraw from all concerts in which venues do not require fans to prove that they have received both coronavirus injections or have had a recent negative result.
Speaking to his Twitter account, Jason said: “We now require proof of vaccination or a current negative test to attend all of our shows, indoors or out. If the venue does not allow it, we will not play. “
Jason isn’t the only artist making rules regarding the coronavirus, as the Foo Fighters had a similar protocol for their concerts.
They requested that concert attendees be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, the last dose received at least 14 days before the show. Children under 16 were allowed to take a negative coronavirus test instead.
However, despite their strict rules, the group was forced to postpone a show last month after a member of their “organization” tested positive.
Foos said in a statement at the time: “Despite all efforts to follow CDC Covid protocols and local laws, there has been a confirmed case of Covid-19 within the Foo Fighters organization.
“Out of caution and concern for the safety of the group, the team and especially the fans, Saturday’s show at the Los Angeles Forum has been postponed to a later date.
“The new date will be announced shortly. Tickets for the July 17th date will be honored for the new date. (Sic)”
The show was to be the first full capacity concert out of the 18,000 venues since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
