Why wouldn't all attend? But unvaccinated people would have to show a negative test. I hope he's not saying that everybody should gather in there without showing they're protected or negative.

People that didn't have their jab yet are at high risk: Those not vaccinated and vaccinated can still transmit the virus. winking smiley

Indeed. But the risk is very low.

I wish to say that I won't attend any show where there are no strict safety rules are applied. Unless there is provision made that there are no people allowed to the venue without vaccination or a negative test that has been taken at the entrance of the venue I reserve the right to get a full refund for my ticket(s).

Not in Holland. All bigger events are cancelled, and the light at the end of the tunnel is a locomotive.

Eric Clapton To Boycott Venues That Discriminate Against Audience

7/21/2021
By: Gideon Gottfried

Eric Clapton said he would not perform at venues that discriminate against their audience, following UK prime minister Boris Johnson's July 19 announcement that proof of vaccination would become an entry requirement to nightclubs and venues hosting large crowds.

The quote from the British guitarist and songwriter icon was given exclusively to London based architect, designer, architectural, urban, film & cultural theorist and commentator Robin Monotti Graziadei, who published it on its Telegram channel. It reads:

"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. Unless there is provision made for all people to attend, I reserve the right to cancel the show."

Pollstar confirmed the authenticity of the quote. Clapton had previously sent an announcement on his vaccination experience through Monotti's channel and also gave him the right to the worldwide premiere of his latest song, “Rebels”.

Lol.

It doesn't appear he's looking to break any rules. Just deciding on what venue's he will/won't play at, same as any other band.

Looks like a rule, smells like a rule.. might just be a rule he thinks he's above (didn't say he broke winking smiley).

Got it, don't think its possible for him to be above or brake any rule, I don't think any venue is consulting him for their requirements. He has to abide by whatever they require.

well, he surly can refuse to perform and tell his lawyers to sort out things…

Like so many other people Clapton mixes things up by using terms like 'discrimination' (or – like others did – 'apartheid'). But there's an inportant difference: While you cannot change the color of your skin or your sex it's very easy to change you vaccination status.

From non-vaccinated to vaccinated, yes. The other way around is a lot harder.

If the cancellation happens at all, it will be more likely the RAH than the U.S. shows where proof of vaccination is not required as far as I know...

Don’t know about the Euro shows, though. Does anybody have information re. gigs and requirement of proof of vaccination across the Channel, not only Clapton concerts but in general?

maybe too early to tell… If you wonder what is going to happen when shows with larger audiences are allowed you might take a look at what happened in the Netherlands
