The Fillmore Minneapolis will require proof of vaccination or negative test for shows

The new policy from the venue's owner, Live Nation, will be in effect this fall.

Live Nation will soon require concertgoers to show proof of vaccination or proof of a negative COVID-19 test at all its venues and festivals.

The new policy goes into effect on Oct. 4, and will apply to both fans and artists at Live Nation venues. In Minnesota, that includes just one space: The Fillmore Minneapolis, which planned to open its doors in February 2020, weeks before the implementation of pandemic lockdowns and restrictions.

“Vaccines are going to be your ticket back to shows, and as of October 4th 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 U.S.,” Michael Rapino, president and CEO of Live Nation Entertainment, said in a statement.

Anyone with tickets to upcoming FIllmore shows should receive a notification about specific details for that event.

The Fillmore, tucked along the Light Rail track near Minneapolis' Target Field, is following in the footsteps of First Avenue (and its numerous properties) as well as the Cedar Cultural Center, both of which announced similar COVID vaccination policies in recent weeks. 

The FIllmore has plenty of events scheduled between now and the implementation of its new policy. The first music show after that Oct. 4 date is Alina Baraz on Oct. 15.
