Here's What Concerts In Canada Could Look Like

If you're excited about attending concerts in Canada this year, there are a few things you'll need to know before heading out to see your favourite artist.

According to CP24 via The Canadian Press, Live Nation Canada will be requiring concert-goers to provide proof that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Alternatively, they can provide a negative COVID-19 test.

"Live Nation and the live music industry are about uniting people, and vaccines are one of the greatest tools for making sure that everyone can continue to enjoy live music together," said Wayne Zronik, President Business Operations, Live Nation Canada in an emailed statement to Narcity. "We're confident this is the right move for everyone coming out to shows, including artists, fans, crew, and our staff."

Live Nation Canada said that the policy will come into effect nationwide no later than October 4.

Reportedly, ticket holders will be notified by email of any important information when planning to attend an event.

On August 17, Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment (MLSE) announced that they will require vaccination proof or a negative COVID-19 test for attendees and staff at all of their venues, which include the Scotiabank Arena where the Raptors and Toronto Maple Leafs play.

"As an organization that hosts more than four million fans per year, at hundreds of events in multiple venues, MLSE is proud to serve as a central gathering place in Toronto and recognizes its responsibility to provide attendees with a safe and secure environment," MLSE said in the announcement.

While Quebec is talking about rolling out a tax on the unvaccinated, Greece is way ahead of the game with a new law that fines certain people for dodging the vaccine.

The new law launched on Monday and it includes a monthly fine for anyone over the age of 60 who chooses to remain unvaccinated.
