Eric Clapton says he won't perform at venues that require proof of vaccination

Eric Clapton says he won't perform at any venues that require people to prove they've received a COVID-19 vaccine.

Clapton issued the statement in response to the United Kingdom's vaccine requirements for people to enter nightclubs and venues.

He previously said he had a "disastrous" experience after getting the vaccine.

Medical experts say they are of course safe.

Clapton has a handful of North American concerts scheduled for September.
