Guided by Voices requiring vaccination at all shows on upcoming tour
Guided by Voices are the latest band to announce they'll be requiring everyone in attendance at their concerts, including staff, to show proof of Covid vaccination.
"Given the spread of the Delta Variant, and the CDC’s recent guideline changes, we are kindly requesting that all attendees to Guided By Voices shows, including staff, be fully vaccinated," the band write in their statement. "Proof of full Covid vaccination will be required at the door for entrance to the show. This is out of an abundance of caution for the safety of the audience, venue staff and band. Refunds will be available at the point of purchase for ticket buyers who are unable to attend. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding."
Guided by Voices' tour kicks off September 10 in NYC with a sold-out show at Irving Plaza, and from there heads to Boston, Lancaster, Peekskill, Baltimore, New Haven, Chicago, and Cleveland. There are December dates in Toronto and Pittsburgh, and a New Year's Eve show in NYC at Brooklyn Made (tickets). The band hit the rest of the country in the spring, including shows in Madison, Minneapolis, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Los Angeles (Teragram Ballroom on 4/1), and Pioneertown. All dates are listed below.
It's Not Them. It Couldn't Be Them. It Is Them!, which is GBV's second album of 2021, will be out October 22, and you can listen to a couple songs from that below.
