MEMI concert venues will soon require COVID vaccine or negative test
CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Music & Event Management, Inc. (MEMI) announced they will require proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test result prior to any concert at their venues beginning Oct. 4.
The venues include Riverbend, PNC Pavilion, ICON Music Center, ICON Festival Stage at Smale park and the Taft Theatre.
“The policy is being enacted in an effort to safeguard the health of concert-goers, touring artists and employees, and to prevent another shutdown of live music which devasted the business amidst the pandemic in 2020 thru May of 2021,” MEMI said in a news release.
According to MEMI, for shows happening between now and Oct. 4, updates or changes to entry requirements will be up to the artist.
Ticket holders who purchased through Ticketmaster will be contacted via email with the updated requirements, they said.
Requirements beginning Oct. 4:
- All fans must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (at least two weeks after final dose) and provide proof of vaccination - either the original vaccination card or a PRINTED copy of the vaccination card with an appropriate ID matching the name on your documentation. OR have received a negative COVID-19 diagnostic test within 48-hours before the event and provide proof of negative result to security prior to entering the venue.
