Thousands Fill Barcelona Arena for a Live Concert After COVID-19 Testing

Thousands of concert-goers gathered at Palau Sant Jordi in Barcelona, Spain, on March 27 after undergoing rapid COVID-19 tests to attend a sold-out event.

Footage shared by Xavier Cervantes shows 5,000 people cheering and singing along with Spanish band Love of Lesbian.

Attendees were not required to socially distance, but were required to keep their masks on for the duration of the concert, according to local news reports.
