Veteran musician Eric Clapton has made another controversial statement against vaccines. The singer said that he will refuse to play at venues that require proof of vaccination. The statement comes following the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement that people wanting to enter nightclubs and venues holding large crowds will need to show proof of vaccination.
Reacting to this statement, Eric 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.”
Clapton is known for his anti-vax opinion. The singer had previously revealed that he had a severe reaction to his first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine and he would have been better off not taking it.
He also came out with a single ‘Stand and Deliver’ in collaboration with Van Morrison, which criticised lockdowns and wearing of masks. As of now, Clapton doesn’t have any shows planned in the UK until mid-2022.
