Pittsburgh concert venues update COVID policies

Pittsburgh concert-goers are eager to see their favorite performers as touring resumes. But in the midst of a global pandemic, COVID requirements at venues are changing rapidly. Bill O’Driscoll, arts and culture reporter for our sister station, 90.5 WESA, joined WYEP’s Morning Mix host Joey Spehar to talk about current policies for attending concerts in Pittsburgh.

Since the publication of this article last week, at least one other Pittsburgh venue – Club Café on the South Side – has updated its COVID-19 vaccination policy.

Live Nation will require concertgoers provide vaccine card, negative COVID test beginning Oct. 4
