CANANDAIGUA, N.Y. (WHEC)— If you plan to rock out at the Constellation Brands-Marvin Sands Performing Arts Center this summer, you'll have to get a COVID shot.
CMAC Tuesday announced the venue will require proof of vaccination before you enter. In a dueling move, CMAC announced it will host a vaccine clinic on its stage on June 10, two complimentary tickets will be given out for the venue's welcome back show on July 10.
"After thoughtful consideration of our operations team, our artists and our patrons, CMAC wants to ensure all feel safe when enjoying our venue," President of the Friends of CMAC Ginny Clark said. "We are proud of our history and tradition in providing a safe community venue.”
CMAC's move follows a similar effort at Radio City Music Hall in NYC, which will also open at 100% capacity, with no masks required.
Additionally, the venue announced three new scheduled performances starting with the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) on July 3.
A week after that on July 10, the venue will host a welcome back concert to honor first responders, and it'll feature local artists Shades Of Grey, Alyssa Trahan and Brass Taxi. Then, on July 31 rock band Blackberry Smoke, along with several other acts will perform.
Tickets for those shows go on sale Friday.
Previously announced shows will include country singers Thomas Rhett and Luke Combs.
