Shows by rock band Foo Fighters in Alaska will require spectators to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or receive a negative test result 48 hours before the show, a Ticketmaster announcement said on Saturday.
The 12-time Grammy-winning group have three performances scheduled for their Alaska tour, including two in Anchorage on August 17 and 19 at the Dena’ina Center and one in Fairbanks on August 21 at the Carlson Center.
Negative test results or proof of vaccination must be provided before entering, the statement said – either the original card or a copy of the card with a corresponding ID. Fully vaccinated means two weeks after the final dose.
Ticket buyers have received an email saying fans under the age of 12 will need to take a COVID-19 diagnostic test within 48 hours of the event to provide a negative test result. Unvaccinated fans over the age of 12 who have a valid medical reason and grade must also take a COVID-19 diagnostic test, the email says.
Wearing a mask is encouraged but not compulsory.
Some bands and other venues in the Lower 48 have required proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result for admission, although such conditions have generally not been required in Alaska.
