Bruce Springsteen bans spectators vaccinated with Astra Zeneca


June 22, 2021

The AstraZeneca vaccine has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration of the United States.
Bruce Springsteen fans who have been vaccinated with the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine against COVID-19 will not be able to watch the singer's upcoming performances on Broadway.

As announced last week, the show "Springsteen On Broadway" returns for the second time to "St. James Theater "in New York for a series of concerts from June 26 to September 4.

The show will be able to watch the fully vaccinated Bruce Springsteen fans, but excludes those who have received the AstraZeneca vaccine, who will not be allowed to enter.

Fully vaccinated viewers should have received one of the vaccines approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the AstraZeneca vaccine is not on the list, although it has been given to millions of people in the rest of the world.

If the AstraZeneca vaccine is approved by the US Food and Drug Administration before September, Bruce Springsteen fans will be able to purchase tickets for the artist's Broadway performances.

The first cycle of the show "Springsteen On Broadway" started on October 3, 2016 and ended on December 15, 2018, after 236 concerts that brought in total revenue of 113 million dollars.

"I loved doing 'Springsteen on Broadway' and I'm excited to be asked to repeat the show as part of the re-launch of Broadway," said the 71-year-old singer, who was honored with a Special Tony Award for the show.

Ticket prices for Springsteen on Broadway concerts range from $ 400 to $ 2,800.
