Foo Fighters are set to be the first act to play a full-capacity concert at New York’s Madison Square Garden since the coronavirus pandemic began – but audience members will have to be fully vaccinated to get in.
The band announced the news on Tuesday, but the fact fans will have to have had their second dose of the coronavirus vaccine at least 14 days before the show hasn’t gone down well with everyone.
Announcing the news on Twitter, the official Foo Fighters account tweeted: ‘We’ve been waiting for this day for over a year. And @TheGarden is going to feel that HARD.
‘New York, get ready for a long a** night of screaming our heads off together to 26 years of Foos.’
It will be the first full-capacity show to take place at the venue, without social distancing or masks, since the pandemic began.
The show will take place on June 20 and audience members will have to show proof that they have been fully vaccinated against coronavirus as well as their tickets in order to enter the venue.
In the UK, vaccination has now opened up for all adults over 20, with record numbers booking in for their jab when the age limit was lowered.
