Chicago Is Hosting A Special Concert Series For Fully Vaccinated People Only

Being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 is now a ticket to a special concert series presented by the City of Chicago.

The City announced on Wednesday that they will be putting on the "Protect Chicago Music Series," a monthly series of music events that can only be accessed by those who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, with a goal of incentivizing "people to step up and get [a vaccine], especially younger people."

"The pandemic has had a huge impact on arts and culture in our city, and I know residents and artists alike are ready to move past the past year and get back to making and listening to music together," said Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events Commissioner Mark Kelly. "These events are a great way to remind people of the importance of vaccination. Get vaccinated and get your free ticket."

In order to attend the first event, you must have received both doses of a two-dose vaccine or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine by May 8. Once you are fully vaccinated, you can claim your ticket on Eventbrite, at a designated vaccination site or will call, and then you will be required to present your ticket, CDC vaccination card and ID at the door.

The first concert will be held Saturday, May 22 in Hyde Park and feature performances by DJ Ron Trent and Duane Powell. Future concert dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
