Phil Lesh has announced that all fans must show proof of vaccination or provide a negative COVID-19 test before they will be admitted to his run of shows at the Brooklyn Bowl in Nashville on July 29, 30 & 31.

The proof of a negative COVID-19 test must have been administered within 72 hours of the day of the show for each individual night.

Phil Lesh has been a proponent of organ donation since his own liver transplant in 1998 and is now advocating for COVID-19 precautions as well.

The announcement comes with the increase of Delta variant cases of the COVID-19 virus across the United States and the globe.
