We’re committed to doing everything we can to ensure we can continue bringing amazing live concerts to fans. Starting October 4th, prior to entry into South Side Ballroom, ALL shows will require attendees to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result within 72 hours of the event OR full COVID-19 vaccination (at least two weeks after final dose). Proof must be a PRINTED copy of a negative test result or vaccination, or the original vaccination card.
What kind of COVID-19 test is considered a diagnostic test?
A PCR or antigen COVID-19 test will be accepted – please be sure to bring printed proof of your negative test result, dated and time-stamped.

Will at home COVID-19 tests be accepted?
At-home covid test results will only be accepted if there is a link to results you can print from a medical platform.
I have received my first COVID-19 vaccination dose, will my first dose vaccination card be accepted at entry?
Proof of full vaccination requires the last vaccination dose to be administered at least two weeks prior to the event date. If your dose is from a vaccine series that requires two doses, full vaccination status requirement would be met only 14 days after the second dose. For those guests who have only received the first of two doses, proof of a negative COVID-19 diagnostic test will be required, and taken within 72 hours prior to the event date.
How soon to the event date should I take a COVID-19 diagnostic test?
For events that require proof of a negative COVID-19 diagnostic test, most events are requiring the test to be taken within 72 hours prior to the event date. Check the event details page for Health Check requirements for your specific event.
A member of our group is under 12 years of age and is ineligible for vaccination, can he/she still attend an event requiring vaccination?
When an event requires proof of a negative COVID-19 test or proof of vaccination, any unvaccinated fans under 12 years of age will be required to provide printed proof of a negative COVID-19 diagnostic test taken within 72 hours prior to entering the venue.
I am ineligible for vaccination due to underlying health conditions, am I unable to attend an event requiring vaccination?
When an event requires proof of a negative COVID-19 test or proof of vaccination, unvaccinated fans with a valid medical restriction will be required to provide printed proof of a negative COVID-19 diagnostic test prior to entering the venue.
Do you require a specific type of COVID-19 diagnostic test?
Events require proof of either a negative PCR or antigen COVID-19 diagnostic test.
Will I have to wear a mask?
Per Dallas County mandate, masks/face coverings are required indoors, except while eating and drinking.
An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. Senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.
