We’re committed to doing everything we can to ensure we can continue bringing amazing live concerts to fans. Prior to entry into The Magnolia, 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.
