This is what we’re going to have to put up with now the rest of our lives to do just about anything.  Completely Orwellian.

Alas, don’t worry, “Ticketmaster will not store or have access to your medical records.” Definitely very 1984ish. I can see some variation of this for attending sporting events at some point and even booking a flight.

Oh this will be everywhere. You won’t be able to leave your house without complying. Airlines will surely have this in place ASAP.

Have you been exposed to the COVID Virus?


Not sure. Don't worry, there's an app for that. Download it now at the App Store.

Yeah, they will. So many are already applauding it. You underestimate the willingness of people to do what they’re told.

As if Ticketmaster didn't already have a monopoly on live events:

"For Ticketmaster, two new technologies at the companies will help its clients scale the program. The first is digital ticketing that's linked to a fan’s identity, eliminates paper tickets and can be restricted from being transferred or resold..."

Bye Bye StubHub and other ticket resellers.

I am very curious how employers are going to handle this once a vaccine is available. Get vaccine or be fired? Refuse vaccine and then bye-bye employer health insurance coverage?

Personally, I am in no rush to get a vaccine once it comes to market. Let others be the guinea pigs while I continue to pretty much self-quarantine.


I am really hesitant about my kid getting a non-proven vaccine - especially since no long term effects of either COVID or the vaccine are known. I am trying to be as informed as possible but the information is simply not out there. I even get conflicting information / opinions from the infectious disease specialists that I work with and those guys are the ones who are really on top of this. The data just isn't there.

StubHub and the legal resellers should be fine.  They have partnerships with all these companies.  The digital imprint can be transferred with the ticket.  Info is transferred now.  But illegal scalping just got a shit-ton harder.

I am not going into a packed arena or stadium anytime soon. They can open up next fall and I still won't be going. This is going to be with us for a few more years at least.

This is just capitalism playing out. They think that this will sell them more tickets, so they do it. It doesn't make any sense, but nothing does today. Once the vaccine is available to everyone, if you choose to go to a concert unvaccinated, then you take your chances. After that you can get stuck in the weeds talking about the 10% of people who still catch it after being vaccinated, how long the vaccine lasts, a negative test means that you were negative when tested but not necessarily right now...

I agree with the 2nd part but in no way is this capitalism.  I think this is in response to a Biden presidency and rumors of government mandates, so they want to get ahead of it.  This will not sell more tickets and they know it.  But they're a monopoly and they also know we can't do anything about it, and they're expecting government regulations that could be more onerous if they don't create their own plan.  None of that is capitalism.

The people "applauding it" aren't the ones going to see live concerts.
