Kanye West’s “Donda” concert in Chicago does not require attendees to get vaccinated or test negative for COVID-19, but the good news is that fans can get inoculated on the spot.
According to a representative for Soldier Field, the football stadium where Kanye will have his next listening session for his new album, more than 1,500 dosages will be available for Kanye fans who wish to roll up their sleeves.
The doses are split between the two-shot Pfizer and one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccines, according to our sources. Officials from the Chicago Department of Health will be on-site to help set up appointments for those obtaining their first dose of Pfizer, which recently received full FDA approval.
Kanye isn’t the one pushing the vaccine; we’re informed that ASM Global Management, which runs Soldier Field, collaborated with the City of Chicago to make it happen.
It’ll be interesting to see how many people roll up their sleeves before listening to Kanye’s new album… vaccines were available at Ye’s last listening party in Atlanta, but only 4 out of 40,000 people took advantage of the opportunity.
Soldier Field, home of the NFL’s Chicago Bears, will have a reduced capacity, with only 38,000 people allowed inside instead of the regular 63,000.
