Ak-Chin Pavilion in Phoenix
Alanis Morrissette plays Ak-Chin Pavilion in Phoenix on Oct. 3, 2021, one day before COVID-19 restrictions begin at the venue.

Starting Monday, Live Nation-operated venues in Phoenix require vaccinations or a negative COVID-19 test to attend concerts and events. 

Those vaccines will need to be two weeks prior to a show. 

The company owns many venues in the state, such as the Van Buren, Arizona Federal Theatre and Ak-Chin Pavilion in Phoenix.

For attendees and artists who haven’t been vaccinated, they will require a negative test from a medical provider within 72 hours of the show. At-home tests will not be accepted. 

Live Nation is requiring all employees to be vaccinated as well. 

The Phoenix Theatre Company, which is not owned by Live Nation, will require fans to be fully vaccinated and wear masks at some select upcoming events.
