Anti-vaccine protesters demonstrated on Tuesday outside a Foo Fighters concert in California that allowed only vaccinated fans, Variety reported.

On Saturday, the rock band announced an intimate show at the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills ahead of a larger performance with similar requirements at Madison Square Garden in New York City on June 20.

Attendees had to show proof that they were 21 or over and vaccinated in order to pick up their nontransferable tickets at the club on Sunday, Rolling Stone reported.

Variety reported that the protesters appeared to be joined by Ricky Schroder, a former child star.

"Dave Grohl is an ignorant punk who needs slapped for supporting Discrimination," Schroder wrote in a Facebook post on Sunday, referring to the Foo Fighters front man. "Ignorance comes in all shapes & sizes. Kurt Cobain is laughing at you Dave along with Millions of Patriots....Fool."

Schroder and Foo Fighters' record label did not immediately respond to Insider's requests for comment.
