Eric Clapton, who previously said he would not perform any shows requiring people to be vaccinated against COVID-19, ended up performing a vaccinated show on September 18 in New Orleans.
Rolling stone said slyly, “He broke that absurd promise by playing Smoothie King.” [Center], which according to its website follows New Orleans regulations that require all ticket holders ages 12 and older, as well as staff and attendees, to prove that they have received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine or to provide a negative test carried out within 72 hours. In addition, they should wear a mask when not eating or drinking. “
The outlet also noted: “A representative from Clapton did not immediately respond to Rolling stonerequest for comment, but maybe the singer has changed his mind. Or, more likely, adhering to the strict rules he recklessly set for his tour would mean canceling several scheduled dates. After all, his next scheduled show on Tuesday at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville will require either a vaccine or a negative test for entry in October. “
Clapton grabbed the headlines during the pandemic and strongly opposed many lockdowns and vaccination warrants. In July, he released a statement saying he would not play at any venue requiring proof of COVID-19 vaccination. In June, he said his opinions had led him to be “ostracized” by his friends and family.
Last month, he released the protest song “This Has Gotta Stop,” which targets the government’s role in various pandemic measures.
