Eric Clapton Refuses to Play Shows That Require Vaccination Proof

Italian architect and film producer Robin Monotti Graziadei shared Clapton’s announcement on the Telegram messaging app.

“Following the PM’s announcement on Monday the 19th of July 2021 I feel honour 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,” the message read, which was signed off by Eric Clapton. “Unless there is provision made for all people to attend, I reserve the right to cancel the show.”

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer made his thoughts about COVID loud and clear last year with his anti-lockdown track “Stand and Deliver” with Van Morrison, which he wrote in an earlier Telegram message is “when I found my voice, and even though I was singing his words, they echoed in my heart.”
