Vegas AEG Venues Among Those Requiring Proof of Vaccination

The policy will take effect October 1, 2021

By Jason R. Latham

With the U.S. in the grip of COVID-19’s resurgent Delta variant, events promoter AEG Presents is taking steps to prevent the virus from sparking another entertainment industry shutdown. The company on Thursday announced that it will require concertgoers and event staff to be fully vaccinated against the virus in order to gain entry to AEG’s owned and operated venues and festivals. 

The policy will take effect October 1, 2021 in order to give concert goers and staff ample time to reach full vaccination status. Prior to October 1, AEG will require proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of the show date.

This reflects the stance taken by the owners of Las Vegas’ Life Is Beautiful festival, which this week announced that proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test would be required for entry into the three-day event, which begins September 17.  

AEG’s decision comes after the company joined fellow promoter Live Nation in requiring all office workers be vaccinated against the virus, and affects some of the largest festivals in the U.S., including AEG’s Coachella Music & Arts Festival and November’s Day N Vegas music festival, a three-day event headlined by Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott, and Tyler, the Creator. 

AEG also has a stake in The Theater at Resorts World Las Vegas, which debuts this fall with Celine Dion, Katy Perry, Carrie Underwood, and Luke Bryan signed to residencies.
