Confirm Before You Go

Some concerts, shows, and events have been canceled or postponed—or venues temporarily closed—due to staff or participants testing positive for Covid-19. This is particularly likely for touring shows. So be sure to check ahead with the organizer of any specific event to verify that it’s still happening as scheduled.
