One of the industries hit the hardest due to COVID-19 is the live music industry and Ticketmaster, who owns LiveNation, is discussing the rules and regulations to continue live music (and you may not like it).
Ticketmaster is in primary discussions about how to handle the live music scene once we’re allowed to have them again. According to New York Upstate, Ticketmaster is talking about making the coronavirus vaccine mandatory in order to attend any live events under their umbrella.
The way it would work is that the event-goer would get the vaccine and send the results to a “health pass provider, such as CLEAR Health Pass or IBM’s Digital Health Pass.” Then, Ticketmaster would verify the results without storing any of the personal information.
If you choose to not get the vaccine, you would have to produce a negative coronavirus test from within 24-72 hours before the event. The whole goal is do eliminate the need for on-site testing at each event.
Granted, these are all preliminary discussions and there isn’t even word yet on when we can expect live events in New York State yet. So far, this is what they’re trying to figure out, I guess we’ll have to wait and see what comes of these talks.
