Because we're still in this pandemic somehow, the Dr. Phillips Center has updated its policy around indoor concerts. Starting Friday, Oct. 1, they will require all concert attendees to show a negative COVID-19 test for entry. If the attendee is fully vaccinated, they can show their proof of vaccination in lieu of the test.

In addition to the new requirements, all concertgoers over the age of 2 will be required to mask up.

"If an existing ticket holder is unable to comply with these updated policies, they can contact the Bill & Mary Darden Box Office at the Dr. Phillips Center for a full refund," the venue wrote in a statement on the changes. "For tickets purchased through resale or third-party sites, ticket holders should contact those sites directly to determine their refund policies."

None of the new requirements are applicable for Frontyard Festival, their outdoor series of concerts.
