Ticketmaster receive backlash for planning vaccine status checks.

Fancy going to a Beyoncé concert sometime? 

Be prepared to disclose your medical and vaccine records! Eek. Angry concertgoers are calling for Ticketmaster to face boycotts after they announced plans to screen attendees, which would require a smartphone. 

After purchasing a ticket, fans would need to verify they have already been vaccinated or tested negative for coronavirus approximately 24 to 72 hours prior to the concert. Yikes. It seems concert organisers are determined to bring back tours following this week's announcement that a vaccine jointly developed by Pfizer and BioNTech is 90 percent effective in preventing Covid-19 infections. A mass roll-out is being planned for next month, once the vaccine passes safety checks. 

How about this? Not every concertgoer owns a smartphone, dummies. Furthermore, the target population for this vaccine certainly isn't healthy young people, yet they want to penalise their biggest audience (young people). 

Let that sink in.

At least they're trying to think of a way. Personally, it will take a long time before I will ever to concert again. With or without a vaccin, or test.

Some artists are still promoting their tours for 2021 but I think it's too soon. The virus still won't be wiped out by then. I'll be more comfortable going to one in 2022 and beyond.
