    "How Ticketmaster Plans to Check Your Vaccine Status for Concerts

    Ticketmaster has been working on a framework for post-pandemic fan safety that uses smart phones to verify fans' vaccination status or whether they've tested negative for the coronavirus within a 24 to 72 hour window.

    ...The plan, which is still in development phase, will rely on three separate components -- the Ticketmaster digital ticket app, third party health information companies like CLEAR Health Pass or IBM's Digital Health Pass and testing and vaccine distribution providers like Labcorp and the CVS Minute Clinic.

    Here's how it would work..."

    Under the current version of the plan, the customer has to direct the testing lab or vaccinating clinic to release the information:

    "..the fan would instruct the lab to deliver the results to their health pass company, like CLEAR or IBM. If the tests were negative, or the fan was vaccinated, the health pass company would verify the attendee's COVID-19 status to Ticketmaster, which would then issue the fan the credentials."

    That makes sense. I guess I could have read the article. :isay:
    I didn't see where it said if the ticket buyer gets a refund if they don't pass. Knowing Ticketmaster I'm assuming no unless I missed something.

    Looks like I will never attend a concert ever again. Glad that I grew up when I did.

    True. Plus, all of the good ones are dead or retired anyway.
