Two more area concerts will require additional safety protocols for fans.

Those attending the Sept. 18 Counting Crows performance or the Oct. 13 Dave Matthews Band show at the Walmart AMP must provide printed proof of a negative COVID-19 diagnostic test taken within 72 hours before the show or printed proof of full vaccination.

Test results can be either PCR or antigen. Those presenting full vaccination cards must include proof of receiving their final dose at least two weeks prior to the show.

AMP officials said the venue will honor all artist’s requests for additional safety protocols for the remainder of the 2021 season.

With virus cases on the rise and hospitals nearing capacity, vaccine requirements have become more common as a condition of entry for events.

Artist Jason Isbell recently made headlines when he announced that all of his upcoming concerts would require proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test for attendees. Isbell said he will cancel any performances at a venue that won’t cooperate with the protocols.

Last week, local bluegrass band Arkansauce announced that their upcoming show at George’s Majestic Lounge on Aug. 21 would have a similar requirement.
