According to a report by MusicWatch, just 6% of fans would not visit a venue where COVID-19 safety requirements were in place.
More than two out of three music listeners are in favor of venues implementing COVID-19 safety protocols at concerts. According to a study conducted by research company MusicWatch, 67% of music listeners surveyed who attend live shows said they believe venues should enforce requirements related to masking, proof of vaccination or recent testing.
The findings may come as a relief to many venue owners or promoters who struggled with whether or not to implement vaccine requirements, masking or other COVID-related policies earlier this year. As concerts began to open up nationwide this spring and summer, independent venues were the first to ask concertgoers to help reduce the risk, followed by industry giants AEG and Live Nation who asked fans to bring proof of inoculation or proof of inoculation or a negative COVID-19 test, respectively.
