You may or may not have seen by now that Live Nation, the ticket and live event entertainment company, has announced that soon, all planning to attend any events held at venues they manage will be required to show proof of vaccine before being allowed to enter the arenas.

What you may have failed to pick up on, and if you're from South Jersey, pay attention, is that one of their main venues here in our neck of the woods is BB&T Pavilion in Camden. Yep, the arena on the waterfront. Live Nation will require, as of October 4th, either your vaccine ID card or a negative COVID-19 test prior to entry into your concert. So, how will this impact you?

Well, if you're vaccinated, it really doesn't matter and, I guess, that means it's business-as-usual for you. For those that are unvaccinated, it just means an extra step to the drugstore or to the COVID-19 testing sight nearest you in order to obtain a test and your results. Luckily, they're not mandating vaccinations for entry completely.

Venues ran by AEG Presents however, are, in fact, not going to be allowing anyone to attend their shows if they're not vaccinated. So, the only left to say about BB&T Pavilion is thank goodness they're allowing both, right? Otherwise, they'd most likely have to deal with much less of a crowd at their shows which could potentially cost them even more money. Since the live event industry has lost so much already as a result of the shutdowns, you'd think all companies in that realm of work would want to put protocols in place that allow both them and event attendees to "have their cake and eat it too".

For South Jersey residents at least, they've got a bit of time until concert-going is gone forever except for the vaccinated. Again, that's just for now. Anything can happen in the future...

Heading To The Barefoot Country Fest This Weekend? See How Much It Would've Costed You In Gas To Get There The Year You Were Born:

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.

Does Your State Make The List? The Top States In The U.S. Where People Live The Longest

Stacker used data from the 2020 County Health Rankings to rank every state's average life expectancy from lowest to highest. The 2020 County Health Rankings values were calculated using mortality counts from the 2016-2018 National Center for Health Statistics. The U.S. Census 2019 American Community Survey and America's Health Rankings Senior Report 2019 data were also used to provide demographics on the senior population of each state and the state's rank on senior health care, respectively.

Read on to learn the average life expectancy in each state.
