The short, straight to the point statement comes nearly two weeks after one of McCartney’s few contemporaries, Eric Clapton, made headlines saying he wouldn't play any venues that require proof of vaccination against COVID-19.

Clapton’s statement was shared via the Telegram account of architect/noted anti-lockdown activist Robin Monotti Graziadei and read, “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.”

Prior to Clapton’s statement. U.K. Prime Minster Borris Johnson announced by the end of September, people will need to show proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to enter any nightclub or any other large crowd venue.
