AMSTERDAM — The Rolling Stones canceled their concert in Amsterdam on Monday, hours before it was due to start after singer Mick Jagger tested positive for COVID-19.
The band announced the cancellation in a statement, saying 78-year-old Jagger tested positive “after experiencing symptoms of COVID upon arrival at the stadium” on the outskirts of Amsterdam. There were no further details about his condition.
“The Rolling Stones deeply regret tonight’s postponement, but the safety of the public, fellow musicians and the touring crew must take precedence,” the statement said, adding that the show would be rescheduled and tickets to the concert at Johan Cruijff in Amsterdam Arena would be honored for the new date.
Some fans were already at the stadium when it was announced that the show had been cancelled.
The veteran rockers tour Europe with a show called SIXTY to celebrate six decades together. Their last show was on June 9 at Liverpool’s Anfield Stadium. The next scheduled concert is on June 17 in Bern, Switzerland.
