ERIC CLAPTON Refuses To Play Shows Where Proof Of Vaccine Is Required

Eric Clapton said he will not perform at any venues that require attendees to prove that they’ve been vaccinated against COVID-19, reports Rolling Stone.

Clapton issued his statement in response to Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement on Monday, July 19, that vaccine passes would be required to enter nightclubs and venues. Clapton’s statement was shared via the Telegram account of film producer and architect Robin Monotti, who has also been skeptical of the COVID-19 vaccine and expressed other doubts about the UK government’s response to the pandemic. (Clapton previously shared a message about his “disastrous” health experience after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine on Monotti’s Telegram page.)

“Following the PM’s announcement on Monday the 19th of July 2021 I feel honor-bound to make an announcement of my own,” Clapton said. “I wish to say that I will not perform on any stage where there is a discriminated audience present. Unless there is provision made for all people to attend, I reserve the right to cancel the show.”
