Two more concerts in the area will require additional security protocols for fans.
People attending the Counting Crows show on September 18 or the Dave Matthews Band show on October 13 at the Walmart AMP must provide printed proof of a negative COVID-19 diagnostic test taken within 72 hours before the show or printed proof of complete vaccination.
Test results can be either PCR or antigen. People with complete vaccination records must include proof of receipt of their last dose at least two weeks before the show.
AMP officials said the venue will honor all artist requests for additional security protocols for the remainder of the 2021 season.
With the increase in virus cases and almost all hospitals, vaccine requirements have become more common as a condition of entry for events.
Artist Jason Isbell recently made headlines when he announced that all of his upcoming concerts would require proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test for attendees. Isbell said he would cancel any performance at a venue that does not cooperate with the Protocols.
Last week, local bluegrass group Arkansauce announced that their next show at George’s Majestic Lounge on August 21 would have a similar requirement.
