Foo Fighters ‘Vaccinated Only’ Concert Canceled After Fully Vaccinated Member Gets COVID
By B.K. House | Jul 19, 2021
The Foo Fighters had to postpone a concert that was scheduled for last Saturday in LA after a positive Covid19 case was confirmed within the band’s fully vaccinated organization.
The band had only recently begun touring again, playing large venues strictly for the fully vaccinated, and requiring that concert attendees show proof of vaccination upon entry to their shows.
In an ironic twist of fate, a breakthrough case was discovered among one of the Foo crew, all of which have reportedly received either the single-dose J&J shot or two or the other options. The positive test forced the band to postpone the LA show.
Foo Fighters posted news of the cancellation on Twitter without specifying who in the organization had contracted the virus.:
Breakthrough cases of Covid are on the rise. As of July 12, the CDC reported 5,492 cases of fully vaccinated people which resulted in hospitalization and/or death. Last week the New York Yankees vs Red Sox series opener was canceled after fully vaccinated players tested positive.
