Bruce Springsteen returns to Broadway on 26 June, making him the first artist to perform for an indoor audience at a major event since Covid-19 shut down concerts and festivals in New York. 

According to The Guardian, concert-goers need to be fully vaccinated with a FDA or WHO-approved vaccine in order to attend. Attendees will be required to show proof of vaccination at their time of entry into the theatre with their valid ticket. 

According to Jujamcyn concert guidelines, "fully vaccinated" means the performance date you are attending must be at least 14 days after your second dose of a FDA or WHO approved two-dose Covid-19 vaccine, or at least 14 days after your single dose of a FDA or WHO approved single-dose Covid-19 vaccine.

All seating for Springsteen on Broadway will not be socially distanced, and mask-wearing is not required, reports go on to say. 

"Springsteen on Broadway is being seen as a test for a wider Broadway reopening, with many other shows not planning their own curtains-up until September or later," The Guardian reports.
