Could COVID App Entry for Concerts/Events Come to Minnesota?
This could be a thing. You get a vaccine for COVID 19, then you get your verification uploaded to an app on your phone. This then let's concert and event entrance people know that you have been vaccinated and allows entry to said event. This is actually something that is being implemented in New York. This is being tested there. But, if it works well, this is something that could potentially move on to other states around the country including Minnesota.
Earlier last year, Ticketmaster and Live Nation did mention that they could be implementing the requirement for the vaccine or a negative COVID test within a certain amount of time before being allowed entrance to any of their events. Ticketmaster holds tickets for almost every event and concert you can think of. Live Nation is the company that puts on many concerts and events around the state. One of which happens to be We Fest. A super popular Country event in Detroit Lakes. That festival is something that people like to go to whether you are a fan of the music or not. Lots of people seem to just go to camp and party with a bunch of others and don't even make it to any of the shows. To each their own, but would it inhibit your attendance if something like the app verification was being implemented?
I feel like there might be a bit of backlash if this is put into place everywhere. I guess we will have to wait and see how this rolls out in New York first. They are planning to open up their entertainment venues to limited capacity beginning in April.
