Kanye West’s ‘Donda’ concert will offer COVID vaccines at venue

Shots for everyone at the “Donda” listening party!

No, not the alcoholic kind.

Kanye West fans do not have to show proof of vaccination or a negative coronavirus test to attend his album listening party in Chicago on Thursday, but they will have the chance to get inoculated on site.

A spokesperson for Soldier Field, the football stadium at which the Chicago native’s event will be held, told TMZ Wednesday that there will be more than 1,500 doses of the Johnson & Johnson and recently FDA-approved Pfizer vaccines on-hand at the venue for any fans who choose to roll up their sleeves.

This is not the first venue to offer COVID vaccines at an event for the 44-year-old rapper. On Aug. 6, West livestreamed the highly anticipated album for thousands of fans at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta for the second time, where they also had the opportunity to receive a COVID vaccine. However, according to Billboard, only four of the more than 40,000 attendees opted to get the shot.

With fewer people in attendance this round — Soldier Field has limited its capacity to 38,000 people out of the usual 63,000 — there will be two major questions to be answered: Will more (or even fewer) people get the shot, and when is Yeezy — or “Ye,” if he gets his wish — finally releasing the much-delayed album to the masses?
