BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — Fans in attendance for Friday's Foo Fighters concert at the Hartford Healthcare Amphitheater in Bridgeport will be required to show proof of vaccination.

The venue is mandating all those with tickets for Friday's concert must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19, and show their original vaccination card, or a copy of their card, before entering.

Fans who may not be fully vaccinated can show proof of a negative COVID-19 diagnostic test within 48 hours of Friday's concert, and still be permitted to attend.

Unvaccinated fans under 12 years of age will be required to take a COVID-19 test within 48 hours of the concert, and show a negative test result before entering the venue.

The venue said unvaccinated fans over the age of 12 years with a valid medical restriction will be required to take a COVID-19 test within that same 48-hour time frame prior to the concert, and show proof of a negative test result.
