Foo Fighters are mandating that anyone set to attend their shows in Alaska must prove they have been vaccinated against COVID-19 or have tested negative for the virus prior to the event.

Anchorage Daily News reports that the band, set to perform three shows in the state between August 17 and August 21, will not be requiring masks at their events, but masks are encouraged. However, the band is requiring that fans show proof of vaccination at the door or a negative COVID-19 test that was taken within 48 hours of the concert.  Audience members must also show an ID that matches the information on the vaccination card or negative COVID-19 test document.

Prior to their Alaska shows, the Foos performed before a fully vaccinated audience in June at New York City’s Madison Square Garden — the venue’s first arena show since COVID-19 shut it down in March 2020.
