GLYNN COUNTY, Ga. – Fans who attended the Jonas Brothers concert Friday night at Daily’s Place were asked by the band to have proof of a negative COVID-19 test or proof of a vaccination.

If unvaccinated, adults were asked to show proof of a test that was taken within the past 72 hours, or rapid tests were available at the venue. Younger people also had to test negative.

Anyone not meeting the requirements wouldn’t be allowed inside.

A statement from a spokesperson for Daily’s Place reads:

“Certain acts visiting Daily’s Place have expressed their preference is to require that all attendees to their event provide confirmation of a negative COVID-19 test within 72-hours prior to entering the venue. As an alternative to obtaining a negative test, they may voluntarily show they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.”

The Jonas Brothers made the announcement in August that they will be requiring proof of vaccinations or a negative test at their shows. In a statement on social media, the band said: “We believe this is the best thing we can do for our fans, our hard working crew, and the communities we’re visiting.”

Kellie Amison, who attended Friday’s concert, had been waiting for 16 years to see the pop trio perform.

“It’s like you’re going to Disney -- that excited, jumping out of your skin feeling,” Amison said. “I have literally been in love with these guys so long. They have literally changed my life.”

News4Jax did not see any fans get turned away from the concert due to the band’s requirements.

“It makes us feel good, a lot safer,” said Summer Law, a fan.
