    Eric Clapton has said he will not perform at any venues that require attendees to prove that they have received their full vaccination from the coronavirus by showcasing their government-approved pandemic papers, Your Content has learned.

    Clapton said he will not perform anywhere there is a “discriminated audience present”.

    His announcement came through the social media accounts of an outspoken anti-vaccine activist.

    The three-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee shared his announcement in a Telegram post Tuesday from the account of film producer and architect Robin Monotti, who, like Clapton, has expressed doubts about the COVID-19 vaccine. 

    “Following the PM’s announcement on Monday the 19th of July 2021 I feel honour bound to make an announcement of my own,” Clapton wrote. “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,” he added.
