Harry Styles Show At Xcel Energy Center Will Require Proof Of Vaccination Or Negative COVID Test
Add Harry Styles to a growing list of artists who are making COVID requirements for people to attend their shows. The Jonas Brothers issued a similar statement for their shows as well. Styles show was originally scheduled for July of 2020 at the Xcel Energy Center but was postponed due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
For his show September 22 at Xcel Energy Center everyone will be required to wear a mask along with other COVID precautions. With the return of many live shows the fear has become that they are turning into "super spreader events."
According to Bring Me The News Xcel Energy Center has agreed to the guidelines which are as follows:
Ticketholders must provide proof they have been fully vaccinated (meaning more than 14 days out from their final shot), or proof of a negative COVID-19 diagnostic test from within the 48 hours prior to the show. All attendees must also wear a face mask.
The Xcel Energy Center can hold over 20,000 people and a spokesperson for the venue said they will alert ticketholders of the policy once everything is finalized. What I am wondering is for people that have to get tested they are under a pretty strict timeline to get their results since the test has to have been conducted within 48 hours of the show. Thankfully their are faster test results out there now versus when the pandemic first hit.
Many other music venues including First Avenue and The Basilica Block Party have put the vaccine and/or negative test policy into place as well. But Styles show will be the first in the state to include these mandates in such a large venue. Just a heads up for anyone who is upset about this, I would get used to it since it is either these policies or no shows at all.
