With distribution of a COVID-19 vaccine expected to start in early 2021, online ticketing platform Ticketmaster is going to begin requiring proof of a vaccination or a negative COVID test to gain admission to all their concerts and events.

Ticketmaster will apparently be requiring the proof at the point of sale rather than the concert venue. This means that a customer will have to secure a digital "health pass" from an approved third-party vendor in order to make purchases through the online giant's service.

The concert industry was one of the hardest hit by the global pandemic in 2020 with multiple venues left pleading for congressional stimulus dollars to remain solvent.
