Ticketmaster Is Gearing Up For In-Person Events Again, But You Have To Do This First

Many of us miss the days of being able to go to a concert or live event, and it looks like it may be happening again soon. But, before you’ll be able to enter, you have to present one of two things.

It is being reported that Ticketmaster is gearing up for in-person events to happen again in the near future. However, the company will require that event-goers show proof of being vaccinated against COVID-19, or they will need to show proof of a negative test from the last 24-72 hours.

This idea is still very much in the planning stages, as Ticketmaster works out exactly how people will be able to upload or show their proof. However, company officials are very confident that they will be able to work it all out without issue.

“We’re already seeing many third-party healthcare providers prepare to handle the vetting—whether that is getting a vaccine, taking a test or other methods of review and approval — which could then be linked via a digital ticket so everyone entering the event is verified,” Ticketmaster President Mark Yovich said in a statement to Billboard.

The company wants to make it clear that they will not store customer medical information, instead they will work with third party companies to confirm the customer’s info. Third-party health information firms like CLEAR Health Pass, and testing distributors like Labcorp or CVS Minute Clinic are able to confirm that a customer has tested negative for the coronavirus within the last 24-72 hours.

There is no word on when Ticketmaster hopes to roll out the plan, but we are guessing that it will likely be the new normal from here on out.
