He added that he was honour-bound to make an announcement of his own following the Prime Minister’s announcement.

He also stated that unless there is a provision made for everyone to attend his shows, he reserves the right to cancel his concerts.

Clapton has been quite vocal about his opinions on the Covid-19 vaccine as well as lockdowns.

Both Clapton and Van Morrison teamed up last year to release the anti-lockdown track ‘Stand and Deliver’, which includes the lyrics, “Do you wanna be a free man / Or do you wanna be a slave?”.

Clapton also voiced his opinion on the AstraZeneca vaccine which he was administered back in May, where he claimed to have experienced a severe reaction to the vaccine which had him wondering if he was ever going to play guitar again.
