WEB EXCLUSIVE Duke Energy Center and Live Nation are the most recent additions to the list of ever-growing venues requiring proof of vaccination.

Keys, phone, wallet… vax card. The list of places where you need proof of vaccination to get in is growing every day, with Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts as the newest addition to the list.

Starting Oct. 1, all shows at Duke Energy Center—think NC Theatre, Carolina Ballet, North Carolina Opera, North Carolina Symphony and PineCone shows—will require either proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 PCR test in order to attend live events. And regardless of vaccination status, all attendees will be required to wear a mask during the duration of the performance. 

And Duke Energy Center isn’t the first local venue to require proof of vaccination or a negative test, and it won’t be the last. The Durham Performing Arts Center announced a vaccination or negative test requirement earlier this summer, and all Live Nation events (including shows at Coastal Credit Union Music Park at Walnut Creek and The Ritz) will require proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test beginning Oct. 4. 

In short, if you want to attend live music, shows and other events, go get your shot (visit the NC Department of Health and Human Services’ website to locate a vaccine clinic nearest you). With the list of venues and businesses requiring a vax card getting longer and longer, you’re going to want a vax card to stay in on all the action—plus there are some additional great perks of getting the shot (think free doughnuts!).
