It’s no secret that the COVID-19 pandemic changed the face of the music industry. As a result of social distancing, concerts were essentially non-existent for over a year. But now that vaccinations are here and the world is slowly starting to open up again, we’re starting to see large, public events making a comeback—concerts included.
What’s interesting is observing how event holders are addressing the issue of vaccination when it comes to concert attendance. While it’s too early to tell for sure, it does look like being vaccinated will make going to concerts much more affordable in the coming months.
For example, Chicago has launched a free summer concert series only for people who are vaccinated as a way to encourage people—especially younger ones—to get their vaccination. And if that’s not convincing enough, Miley Cyrus has announced that she’ll be doing the same in honor of Pride month in Nashville, Tennessee.
Meanwhile, in Florida, while you may not have access to concerts for free as a gift for being vaccinated, you will receive a pretty steep discount—we’re talking $18 concert tickets as opposed to $1,000 ones.
The message being sent here is clear. For music fans, getting vaccinated pays off.
