Legendary Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Says He’ll Refuse To Play at Venues that Require Proof of Vaccine

You guys are going to love this.

Legendary rock and roll artist Eric Clapton wants nothing to do with vaccine passports.

Clapton says he reserves the right to cancel shows at venues that require proof of vaccination for concertgoers.

Clapton said, “Following the PM’s announcement on Monday the 19th of July 2021, I feel honor-bound to make an announcement of my own: I wish to say that I will not perform on any stage where there is a discriminated audience present.”

He continued, “Unless there is provision made for all people to attend, I reserve the right to cancel the show.”

These comments come in respond to an announcement from British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Johnson said that anyone wanting to enter nightclubs or other crowded venues will have to show proof of COVID vaccination.

The legendary rock star quickly gained support from folks like Senator Ted Cruz in Texas.

Cruz said, “Artists should defend individual Liberty. I very much support vaccines, but it should be your choice—not forced upon you.”

“Eric Clapton is basically Patrick Henry now,” Blaze podcast host Steve Deace said.

Finally, British journalist and filmmaker Sonia Poulton thanked Clapton and “all musicians who show true integrity by refusing to perform at venues using a totalitarian system of entry.” She added, “It’s impossible for me to respect those going along with this. Human & artistic sell outs controlled by the Govt.”

Of course, the man Rolling Stone dubbed the world’s second-best guitarist (after Jimi Hendrix) had his detractors as well.

Author and Time Magazine columnist Ian Bremmer lamented, “Wow. I love Clapton. Sorry to learn he’s such an a**hole.”

Liz Buckley, label manager for Ace Records, sneered, “Funnily enough, I will not attend shows where Eric Clapton is required.”

Meanwhile, the official account for the left-wing political blog, The Palmer Report, tweeted, “Used to be you’d hope you got to see aging rock stars in concert before they died. These days you hope you get to see them before they become Eric Clapton.”

This isn’t the first time the rock-and-roll-hall-of-famer has shown an independent streak when it comes to COVID policy.
