Jason Isbell show on with vaccination requirement

The show will go on, at least for Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit.

Isbell, who had announced earlier this week that to get into all his upcoming performances would require proof of vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test, and that if the venues didn’t comply, he’d simply cancel the show and refund tickets.

That happened Tuesday as his self-owned label, Southeastern Records, announced that its Wednesday night show in Houston had been cancelled.
