Bob Weir and John Mayer’s Dead And Company are to enforce the requirement for proof of either vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test on their upcoming tour of the USA.

Attendees must provide either a negative COVID-19 test or proof of vaccination within 48 hours of the gigs. Additionally, non-vaccinated fans will not be granted access to the standing pit, even if they show a negative test result.

The above rules apply to the majority of the band’s upcoming dates – some have separate COVID protocols, however, which will be announced closer to the time.

Tours are once again being jeopardised by Coronavirus in the US, thanks to the more virulent Delta variant. This has led to cases continuing to climb back up to pre-summer levels for the country. Dead And Company join several acts – such as Phish, Jason Isbell and Bleachers – who are ratcheting up the COVID protocols in order to curb the spread. Some other acts have cancelled their tours entirely.
