Musician says he refuses to perform for ‘discriminated audiences’

埃里克·克莱普顿 has said that he will not play at venues where a 新冠肺炎 疫苗 is required for entry.

本周早些时候, Boris Johnson unveiled plans for nightclubs and large music venues to demand proof of double vaccination to enter from the end of September.

It is hoped that this will stop the spread of 新冠病毒 among unvaccinated people in large crowds.

星期四 (22 七月), Clapton shared his own statement on the app Telegram via Robin Monotti, an architect and coronavirus sceptic. Monotti shared the comments alongside Clapton’s anti-lockdown anthem “Stand and Deliver”, which was released with Van Morrison last year.

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

“我想说,我不会在任何有歧视观众的舞台上表演. Unless there is provision made for all people to attend, 我保留取消演出的权利。”

The musician’s next scheduled concerts in the UK are set to take place at the Royal Albert Hall in May 2022.

Clapton has been a vocal critic of lockdown throughout the pandemic, in May claiming that he questioned whether he would be able to play guitar again after having a “severe” reaction to the AstraZeneca vaccine.
