PHOENIX — As the metro Phoenix concert scene springs back to life, face masks and COVID-19 vaccines will be required at some shows.

One popular Tempe venue is now mandating face coverings, while vaccinations or negative tests will be required by three bands heading to town.

The Marquee Theatre in Tempe announced on Monday face masks will be required for entry due to the increase in COVID-19 cases. Guests must wear the masks at all times, unless eating or drinking, per CDC guidelines.

Maroon 5, Dead & Company and Rise Against are requiring proof of vaccination or a recent negative test on their upcoming tour in Arizona.

Maroon 5, which will hit the stage Oct. 1, said in a tweet Wednesday that starting Aug. 16, in select markets including Phoenix, proof of vaccination or a negative test results within 48 hours of entry will be required for admission into the event.

“We want you to know that our top priority is the safety and well being of our fans as well as that of the hard working men and women who makes these events possible,” Maroon 5 tweeted.

Dead & Company, playing Oct. 25, announced all guests over the age of 12 will be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative test result.

Fans with tickets to the pit area will need to show proof of vaccination as showing a negative test result won’t be an option in the area.

Children under the age of 12 can attend both concerts at Ak-Chin Pavilion if they show negative test result.

Anyone under the age of 12 will not be allowed in the pit area at Dead & Company.

At the Arizona Federal Theatre in Phoenix, event organizers for Rise Against, set to perform on Tuesday at 6 p.m., will require all attendees to show proof of vaccination or a negative test result.

Unvaccinated fans under 12 years of age, as well as unvaccinated fans over 12 years old with a valid medical restriction and note, will be required to show negative test results.

Face coverings are highly recommended for those who are not fully vaccinated, unless eating or drinking, per Center for Disease Control guidelines.
