A group of anti-vaccines led by American actor Ricky Schroeder appeared at the first regular Foo Fighters concert on June 15 to protest the band's support for coronavirus vaccinations.
The concert took place at The Canyon in Agura Hills, California, and the band was required to show a Covid-19 vaccination certificate before entering the concert venue, which sparked anti-vaccine rage.
Shots of the protest showed protesters holding banners with slogans such as "Stop hatred in the vaccine debate" and "Modern Separation".
Actor Ricky Schroeder was in the crowd wearing a t-shirt with the message
"Say No to the Vaccine Passport" and held up a banner that read: "Manufacturers of COVID vaccines are exempt from liability."
"Dave Grohl is an ignorant punk who needs a slap in the face to support discrimination," the actor wrote in a social media post about the Foo Fighters singer.
"Ignorance in all shapes and sizes. "Curt Cobain laughs with Dave along with millions of patriots." he added, referring to the late Nirvana leader Dave Grohl.
The band will perform at Madison Square Garden in New York this Sunday and fans who attend will also need to have a vaccination certificate.
Some Foos fans expressed their dissatisfaction because the band only gives concerts to a vaccinated audience.
