Harry Styles requiring proof of vaccination or negative test for Xcel Energy Center show

The global pop star will also have a mask mandate for the Sept. 22 concert.

Harry Styles will require concert attendees for his upcoming rescheduled tour to not only provide proof of vaccination or negative test, but also wear a mask during the show.

Styles, who rose to global fame while with One Direction, announced the new measures Wednesday, saying the rules are "for the health and safety of everyone attending Love on Tour." A spokesperson for the Xcel Energy Center, where Styles will play on Sept. 22, confirmed to Bring Me The News the venue will adhere to the guidelines.

Ticketholders must provide proof they have been fully vaccinated (meaning more than 14 days out from their final shot), or proof of a negative COVID-19 diagnostic test from within the 48 hours prior to the show. All attendees must also wear a face mask.

The Xcel Energy Center spokesperson said details on how the venue will execute this will be sent to ticket holders once the plan is finalized. The arena can hold more than 20,000 people.

A number of music venues, including all First Avenue properties and the upcoming Basilica Block Party, have instituted a vaccination or negative test requirement. Styles' concert would be the first large-scale arena show in Minnesota to have this stringent of COVID protocols, and Styles himself is arguably the most famous musician with an upcoming tour stop in the state to enact such policies.
