Foo Fighters Draw Criticism From Right Said Fred For Decision To Play NYC Show To Vaccinated Fans


The Foo Fighters‘ decision to play a 100% capacity show at Madison Square Garden in New York City, NY next Sunday, June 20th, has proven to be a controversial one. As per the venue’s revised safety policy, all those over the age of 16 who wish to attend must provide proof of being fully vaccinated for COVID-19 before being granted admittance. Those under the age of 16 must provide proof of a recent negative COVID-19 test prior to entry.

Despite the band adhering to the venue’s policy and the show being heralded as one of the first big steps to welcome live music back to the city of New York, much criticism has also fallen on their shoulders for deciding to agree to the performance.

Among those to call them out are British one-hit wonders Right Said Fred, who scored big in the early 90s with their platinum certified single “I’m Too Sexy“. That band’s frontman Richard Fairbrass has been shown to be critical of vaccines, labeling their current rollout a “scam” while stating that he has refused to take the vaccine until at least a “year or two” to determine any future sife effects.

Speaking via Twitter to a disappointed fan regarding the Foo Fighters‘ decision to play the concert, the official Right Said Fred account stated:
