CLICK HERE FOR VACCINE POLICY & MASK MANDATE INFORMATION FOR THE VIC THEATRE

VACCINE POLICY

With our return to live concerts and our commitment to producing safe events, all patrons will need to show proof of vaccination (must be 2 weeks past final dose) or a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours from the time of entry along with a government issued photo ID. Proof of vaccination can only include a CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card, a clear photocopy or digital photo of the CDC card. Fans who have either (1) a medical condition, or (2) a closely-held religious belief that prevents vaccination, can still attend the concert by showing proof of a negative COVID-19 test performed within the previous 72 hours that matches the government issued photo ID. Taking this step helps to ensure the safety of our guests, staff, and the artists, and implementing this simple measure minimizes risk and the spread of the virus. We encourage you to get vaccinated if you have not already!

MASK MANDATE

Following updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and based on Chicago’s current local COVID-19 data, the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) is requiring that everyone age two or older, regardless of vaccination status, wear masks in public indoor settings, effective Friday, August 20, 2021. A non-vented N95 mask or other well-fitted mask is strongly recommended to provide maximum protection. We will not allow a scarf, ski mask, balaclava, bandana, turtleneck, collar, single layer of fabric, or any mask that has an unfiltered one-way exhaust valve.

COVID-19 WARNING

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any place where people gather. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. You assume all risks, hazards, and dangers arising from or relating in any way to the risk of contracting COVID-19 or any other communicable disease or illness, or a bacteria, virus or other pathogen capable of causing a communicable disease or illness, whether occurring before, during, or after the event, however caused or contracted, and voluntarily waive all claims and potential claims against Jam Productions, Ltd. and the Vic Theatre (including Vic Holdings, LLC, Freed Vic LLC, Albert Interests, LLC, Victoria Entertainment Properties, LLC and Vic Operating Company LLC) relating to such risks.

*Policy is subject to change based on the show. Please check specific event pages for exact policy information.

In 1912, The Victoria Theater opened as an alternative to the more expensive fare playing in Chicago’s notorious downtown venues. An article in the Chicago Tribune – one of many rave reviews – predicted the theatre would become one of Chicago’s most popular priced houses. Initially built to host vaudeville and touring stage shows, The Vic – as it’s now known – would prove to be one of the more adaptable and resilient such buildings in town, all the while remaining a stable anchor in the ever-changing landscape of the Lakeview neighborhood.

  • ASSUMPTION OF RISK: 
    Holder understands and agrees that there are certain risks of injury, illness and/or death of entering the venue and/or attending the event, including, without limitation, objects flying into the spectator area during an event, special effects at an event, acts or omissions of other spectators and risks related to to the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 and any resulting disease (together with any mutation, adaptation or variation thereof, “COVID-19”). Holder understands and agrees that these risks cannot be fully eliminated.  Holder understands and agrees (a) that the risks of exposure to COVID-19 are increased by proximity to other people, (b) that an inherent and elevated risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place or place where people are gathered, (c) that entering the venue and/or attending the event may involve coming into close contact with other people, and (d) that there is no guarantee, express or implied, that Holder will not be exposed to COVID-19.   
  • Despite these risks, Holder voluntarily assumes ALL known and potential risk and danger of injury and/or death from any cause, resulting from, in connection with, or incidental to the venue and/or event, including exposure to COVID-19.  Holder agrees that the Releasees (defined below) shall not be responsible or liable for any claim, loss, damage or injury, whether occurring before, during, or after the event, regardless of whether caused by the negligence or other fault of Releasees or any third party.     
  • WAIVER: 
    Holder hereby forever releases, waives, discharges and agrees not to sue AXS, Client, Anschutz Entertainment Group, Inc., any owner, manager, operator, or sponsor of the venue, any promoter, producer, or sponsors of the event, any leagues, teams, artists, advertisers or suppliers of the event, and their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, owners, members, managers, directors, officers, past and present employees, volunteers, agents, representatives, successors and assigns (collectively, “Releasees”) for any known or unknown claims, losses, damages, liability, demands or actions incident to entering the venue and/or attending the event, whether such risks and dangers occur before, during, or after the event, including injury or death relating to COVID-19 or any other illness or injury that Holder may sustain while at the venue or related to attending the Event, regardless of whether caused by the negligence or other fault of Releasees or any third party (“Claims”). 
  • For California residents: I understand that this waiver applies to Claims which I may not know or suspect to exist and I knowingly and voluntarily waive such rights, including those under California Civil Code Section 1542, which provides:  “A general release does not extend to claims that the creditor or releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, and that if known by him or her would have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor or released party.”
  • LIMITATION OF LIABILITY: 
    To the fullest extent permitted by applicable laws, none of the Releasees are or will be responsible or liable to you or to any third party for, and you expressly waive all rights to seek, any indirect, incidental, consequential, special, exemplary, punitive or other damages under any theory of liability, arising out of or relating in any way to the Service, transactions made through the Service, and/or materials contained on the Service, or the event (even if we or Client have been advised of the possibility of such loss or damages, or such loss or damages were reasonably foreseeable)
