The Eagles have announced a new concert on November 5 in Seattle in addition to their 2021 California Hotel tower. Participants must provide proof that they are fully vaccinated before being admitted to the site.
“This is a decision made by the group backed by the team at Climate Pledge Arena to make sure they, as well as fans and staff, feel safe,” a statement read. on the arena website. “All documents must come directly from the health care provider who performed the vaccination, and guests must view proof on their smartphone or present a physical copy.” The Eagles show is currently the only concert scheduled at Climate Pledge Arena to require vaccines for guests.
A decision as to whether or not spectators should also wear a mask during the performance will be made later “in accordance with local guidelines”. Children under 12, who are currently not eligible for vaccination, may attend the show if they provide proof of a negative coronavirus test taken within 48 hours of the concert.
The Eagles are set to kick off their next tour on August 22 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, where guests are also scheduled to get their shots.
The debate surrounding vaccination requirements has led to various results in recent months. Live Nation, one of the largest ticketing companies in the world, recently announced that it will allow performers to get vaccinated at concerts if they choose.
Eagles aren’t the first act to require vaccinations at shows. Singer-songwriter Jason Isbell recently indicated that he will be doing it on all of his upcoming shows. “I am for freedom” he said in a TV interview. “But I think if you are dead you have no freedom at all.”
New York City said last week that starting in mid-September, indoor activities such as concerts or indoor dining would require vaccination regardless of location. In other circumstances, upcoming tours and festivals have been completely canceled due to the ongoing pandemic.
