Kanye West fans will not be required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 or provide proof of a negative test to attend his next Donda event.
The event, which originally expected a capacity of 63,000, will only admit 38,000 fans. Chicago Park District spokeswoman Michele Lemons said the reduced capacity emphasizes the city’s commitment to health and safety protocol amid the ongoing outbreak of the viral disease.
“Kanye West’s performance is one of many examples that show that Chicago can be open and safe at the same time,” Lemons said in a statement, The Chicago Tribune reported Thursday. “We have worked with Soldier Field on COVID-19 safety protocols, as we have other venues including Wrigley and Guaranteed Rate Fields, and feel this event can be safely held with the proper mitigation efforts in place.”
Vaccines will however be offered at the gate. Soldier Field and the city teamed up to offer more than 1,500 vaccinations for people who have not gotten their shot yet, and they’ll assist with setting up a second dose at a later date, Rolling Stone reported. This will be Kanye West’s 3rd listening party ahead of his 10th studio album.
