Many of the venues we perform in require patrons to show proof of vaccination to attend events, with the exception of Llewellyn Hall in Canberra, which does not require patrons to show their vaccination status. Requirements for individual concert venues can be found at aco.com.au/covid.

What happens if borders to some states stay closed?
We are confident after our discussions with government and industry partners that the national and state vaccination targets will be met, and borders will reopen in time for our first interstate performances from February 2022 onwards. We have venues, flights and accommodation booked for our musicians. If some borders do remain closed refunds will be offered.
