Ticket holders were required to show proof of vaccination or negative test results to get into the concert, the highlight of a three-day hotel package costing up to thousands of dollars a person.

“Jon feels great,” the announcer told the crowd, adding that the Livin’ On A Prayer singer was going to bed.

He had also been scheduled to participate in a Q&A session and a photo op on Saturday night.

There was no word on whether the concert would be rescheduled.
