Mick Jagger has tested positive for Covid, forcing the Rolling Stones to cancel a concert in Amsterdam.
The rock band is currently touring Europe celebrating their 60th anniversary.
Today (June 13), just hours before they were due to take the stage at Holland’s Johan Cruijff Arena, the 78-year-old singer made an announcement on Instagram.
“I’m so sorry we had to reschedule tonight’s show in Amsterdam at such short notice,” Jagger began.
“Unfortunately I have just tested positive for Covid. We aim to reschedule the appointment as soon as possible and return as soon as possible.”
He concluded: “Thank you all for your patience and understanding. Mike.”
In an earlier statement released on social media, the band said Jagger “experienced symptoms of Covid upon arrival at the stadium”.
They continued, “The Rolling Stones deeply regret the postponement tonight, but the safety of the audience, fellow musicians and touring crew must take precedence.”
No further updates were provided on Jagger’s condition.
Just days ago, the rocker’s five-year-old son, Devereux, showed off his moves backstage at the Rolling Stones concert in Liverpool.
In May, ahead of the tour, Jagger said Brexit had been a “nightmare” for the music touring industry.
