Foo Fighters Fans 'Throw Albums In Bin' After Band Announce 'No Vaccine, No Gig'

A group of Foo Fighters fans have spat out their dummies, after the band's first gig in more than a year stipulated that attendees must have be fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

The small group of would-be gig-goers were so outraged by the band's plans that they claim to have chucked all of their albums and playlists, with others saying they're never booking a ticket again. Awks.

A notice on the Ticketmaster page for the event states: "Guests must have proof of full Covid-19 vaccination - Final Dose 14 Days Before Event."

It adds: "Because of overwhelming demand for these events, in order to accommodate as many guests as possible, Madison Square Garden is complying with New York State mandates that require all guests to be fully vaccinated in such circumstances."

And it seems some of the band's fanbase were less than impressed by that.

Taking to social media, one disgruntled former fan wrote: "Foo Fighters, a band I've long admired, just held a concert for the jabbed only.

"That's every album & playlist with them on, consigned to the bin."

Drastic.

Libertarian comedian Josh Denny said he will 'never buy another ticket to a Foo Fighters concert'.

He added: "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."

Another person put all the blame on lead singer Dave Grohl, writing: "What happened to inclusion not Discrimination? So disappointed.

"Dave Grohl has now officially lost his status as the coolest guy in Rock."

Given the point of the vaccination, though, I don't think Dave'll be too bothered.

But - obviously - not everyone was angry about the decision.

One fan wrote: "Doing a public service to encourage people to get vaccinated.

"Maybe in the middle of a pandemic, that's kinda important?"

You'd think so, wouldn't you?
