Fans required to show proof of negative COVID test or vaccination card to go to some concerts

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Fans will have to show proof of a negative COVID test or their vaccination card at three upcoming concerts, Action News Jax has learned.

Daily’s Place, where the Jonas Brothers and Counting Crows will perform, told Action News Jax masks are strongly encouraged there, but all other COVID safety rules are up to the bands.

The same rule applies to The Killers’ concert, which will be at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre.

”One of my main concerns is what if people don’t realize this,” Action News Jax producer Tiffany Butler said.

Butler bought tickets to the Jonas Brothers back in May. She learned about the new regulations Friday in Action News Jax’s morning meeting.

Butler doesn’t recall having seen any warning of the regulations at the time she bought the tickets. She also says she never got an email or any other notification about the rules.

”Make it a little easier to find on the website when people are checking out and buying tickets,” she suggested.

Action News Jax asked Daily’s Place how its employees would be trained to spot fake test results and vaccination cards. The venue wasn’t able to answer our question.

Action News Jax has reached out to all three groups’ agencies, asking if people will get refunds if they can’t show proof of a negative test or a vaccine. Action News Jax will update this story with the artists’ responses.
