Ahead of his intimate performance at LA's historic Roxy Theatre, Madeon took to social media to send a simple message to unvaccinated ticket-holders: just sit this one out.

"Please don’t come to my show Wednesday if you’re not vaccinated yet," Madeon tweeted yesterday, July 31st. "Not looking to debate here, just don’t come. Please, i’m asking you nicely. Thanks for your comprehension."

The Grammy-nominated electronic music artist recently announced the rare surprise show, which he said was planned for his "most enthusiastic supporters." It's a full circle moment for Madeon, whose first-ever live performance took place at The Roxy back in April 2012, when he was 18 years old.

"If you’re not vaccinated for whatever reason and you have a ticket," he added in a follow-up tweet, "look in the replies a lot of people will buy it from you!"
