The collaboration with Clorox will include the integration of several Clorox disinfecting products, including Clorox® Total 360® electrostatic disinfecting devices to quickly and easily provide superior surface coverage in even the hardest to reach places.

'Clorox is synonymous with clean, and we look forward to welcoming their tried-and-true expertise and products into our venues across the country.'
'As a leader in disinfection, Clorox is committed to helping improve the safety and well-being of people as they return to the live events, they've missed the most over the last year,' said Ed Huber, Vice President and Chief Sustainability Officer at Clorox. 'The pandemic has brought new and important attention to the need for greater public health best practices including cleaning and disinfection and we believe our partnership with Live Nation contributes to creating a cleaner and safer experience for everyone now and long into the future.'
The integration of Clorox products will roll out across each venue as they prepare for reopening and the return of concerts.
