Dead & Company are the latest act to enforce proof of vaccination at their upcoming 2021 tour, which kicks off next week in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Attendees must provide either proof of vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test within 48 hours of the shows. The band has also gone a step further detailing new protocols for the pit: GA ticketholders must show proof or else they’ll be relegated to a “non-pit” seating entry — even if they have a negative Covid test.

The new protocols extend to most of the band’s dates, from August 16th in Raleigh, North Carolina, to three evenings at the Hollywood Bowl through Halloween. However, several shows will receive separate policies to be announced shortly, listed in bold below.

Dead & Company join several acts enforcing this mandate as the Delta variant spreads; in the last few days, Bleachers, Jason Isbell, and more have put new policies in place, while others have either canceled or postponed plans to return to the road.
