It’s not long until we can enjoy live music, theatre and sporting events after coronavirus put a halt on large events back in March. And, boy, have we missed them. When they start up, Ticketmaster could require proof that you’ve taken the coronavirus test, or require a negative test as a requirement when live events return, according to reports.
Anyone that wanted to attend a gig, or a sporting event, would need either a negative test within a window of 24 to 72 hours before the event, or proof of vaccination. Billboard reported that mobile phones will be used to identify whether people have met the two criteria as part of Ticketmaster’s new safety measures.
The plans are still in the development stages, but if they’re approved it would change the way we buy tickets, with the need to verify you don’t have COVID-19 or risk being refused entry. The ticketing company wouldn’t only be able to receive verification on whether you have been cleared to attend any event for people worried about giving personal information.
It really has made a lot of people realise how we take for granted such events, and it will be interesting to see what Ticketmaster’s plans will be when they are finished developing their new practices.
