Read our editor's note on upcoming concerts here, and be aware that, in addition to a citywide indoor mask mandate, some artists and many concert venues are now requiring proof of vaccination or a recent negative COVID test for entry. Here's a guide to proof-of-vaccine requirements for Columbus’ music venues.
