Prudential Center Lifts Vaccine and Mask Requirements for Devils, Concerts, Unless Required by ‘Artists’
Sunday night at the Prudential Center in Newark, Journey keyboardist Jonathan Cain addressed the crowd saying paraphrasing the band’s latest single that fans wanted things to go back to “The Way We Used to Be.”
The powers that be at the venue must have been listening, because today on its Instagram page the Prudential Center announced a new policy change about its vaccine and mask policies.
“Unless required by the artist or promoter of a particular show, guests will no longer be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative test to enter Prudential Center, and will not be required to wear face masks to enter events,” read the announcement.
The lifted requirement includes games for New Jersey Devils hockey games.
“As a result of the Executive Order from the City of Newark on March 2, effective immediately and unless required otherwise by the artist or promoter of a particular show, guests will no longer be required to show proof of vaccination or proof of a negative test to enter Prudential Center, and will not be required to wear face masks to attend events, including New Jersey Devils games. Mask use is still permitted based on fan preference by those who chose to do so,” the venue announced.
The policy was changed after a big weekend featuring shows by Elton John, Tool, and Journey with Toto.
