BRISTOW, Va. — Due to the new announcement Monday for the company Live Nation Entertainment, Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, Virginia, will now require patrons to the music venue to either be fully vaccinated or able to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test.
Live Nationa Entertainment is the parent company that owns Jiffy Lube Live, including a variety of other venues scattered across the United States.
Live Nation President and CEO Michael Rapino released a statement about the news saying:
“Vaccines are going to be your ticket back to shows, and as of Oct. 4 we will be following the model we developed for Lollapalooza and requiring this for artists, fans and employees at Live Nation venues and festivals everywhere possible in the US”
