Mick Jagger Tests Positive for Covid
Add Mick Jagger to the growing list of touring musicians to test positive for Covid-19.
The Rolling Stones front man announced the bad news on social media Monday (June 13), shattering fans who bought tickets to see the band in Amsterdam.
“I’m so sorry that we’ve had to postpone the Amsterdam show with such short notice tonight,” he wrote on Twitter. “I have unfortunately just tested positive for COVID. We aim to reschedule the date ASAP and get back as soon as we can. Thank you all for your patience and understanding. Mick.”
Fans were already arriving at Amsterdam’s Johan Cruijff ArenA when an announcer came on stage to break the bad news about an hour and a half before the scheduled start time.
“The Rolling Stones are deeply sorry for tonight’s postponement, but the safety of the audience, fellow musicians and the touring crew has to take priority,” the group said in a separate statement.
