Widespread Panic issued a COVID-19 safety protocol statement for their upcoming three-night run in Asheville, North Carolina. The shows take place at Harrah’s Cherokee Center August 6 – 8.
Proof of full vaccination or proof of a negative COVID test (within the last 48 hrs) will be needed for entry into the venue. A nasal swab COVID test will be available at a closely located area for those seeking immediate proof of their COVID status.
The State of NC has strongly encouraged mask wearing in public indoor venues for all vaccinated and unvaccinated citizens. Widespread Panic Band and Crew members support this protective measure – helping to ensure the safety of everyone in attendance.
If you have purchased a ticket and don’t feel comfortable with the protocols above, you may request and receive a refund. For those seeking a refund, instructions for requesting one will be sent from Ticketmaster to ticket holders Saturday July 31st.
Widespread Panic has always hoped to co-create an atmosphere of celebration through Music and dance. All concertgoers are our partners in creating that space. The Band and Management have been consulting with contacts at the CDC in an unofficial capacity throughout the Pandemic. This is our guidance:
Please get vaccinated.If you are flu-symptomatic, stay home.If you have been in contact with someone infected with COVID, stay home.Everyone should wear a mask. Masks will be made available for those needing one.Respect one another, and arrive Home safely.
