Foo Fighters have announced a pre-tour Los Angeles gig at L.A.’s Canyon Club on Tuesday, June 15th, according to Metal Injection. The 610-person captaincy venue in Agoura Hills, will — like their June 20th Madison Square Garden show — will be a vaccinated-only gig, with tickets on sale now and going for $26 in celebration of the group’s 26th anniversary tour.
Although the band is being lauded by most fans for ensuring the highest safety protocols for the upcoming concerts, some people have taken to the Internet to vent their frustrations with the Foos, with NME posting some online slams against the band for only allowing fully vaccinated attendees.
Libertarian comedian Josh Denny posted online: “Never buy another ticket to a Foo Fighters Concert. Not all people that choose to NOT vaccinate are conspiracy theorists. Some people, very close to me, have autoimmune conditions that make the vaccine a high risk proposition. ‘Vaccine mandatory’ is 2021’s ‘whites only.'”
- Would you attend a show that included non-vaccinated people???
- As long as you’re cool with being vaccinated, are you of the mind that at this point, if someone’s ISN’T vaccinated — they’re operating at THEIR own risk???
- Do you think the upcoming touring season will be significantly affected by the vaccination policies put forth by bands and venues???
- If you were at an indoor gig with only 610-capacity — would you feel cool going mask-less around all those people drinking and singing out loud???
