Left-wing rock band Foo Fighters have announced a concert cancellation due to a COVID case within their organization after recently forcing their fans to take the vaccine in order to attend shows.
“Despite having made every effort to follow CDC Covid protocols and local laws, there has been a confirmed Covid-19 case within the Foo Fighters organization,” the band wrote on its Twitter page.
The July 17th concert at the LA Forum is being postponed to a later date.

The band has been playing shows only vaccinated individuals can attend, selling out Madison Square Garden on June 20th. Protesters showed up outside both the NYC show and a Los Angeles vaccinated-only concert.
