The Rolling Stones have announced that their concert in Bern, Switzerland, has been canceled. Last week, the group shared their intent to reschedule the performance–which was initially postponed after the band’s frontman, Mick Jagger, tested positive for COVID-19–but, despite all attempts, they were unsuccessful. 

In a post shared by the band across their social media platforms, they informed fans, “We regrettably have to announce that despite all the best efforts the Rolling Stones concert in Bern, Switzerland cannot be rescheduled and has now unfortunately been canceled.” The statement went on to read, “The Stones concert promoters have worked extremely hard all week and tried everything they possibly could to find an alternative date or venue for the concert in Switzerland but sadly this was not possible.”

The post ended with: “The band wish[es] to send a huge apology to all the fans in Switzerland who bought tickets and are deeply saddened they cannot perform in Bern on this tour.” They also included that refunds will be issued from June 21 through July 17 through the patron’s place of purchase. 

Today’s announcement is the latest in a series of COVID-related postponements and cancelations for the veteran rock group. Last week, The Rolling Stones postponed their appearance at Amsterdam’s Johan Cruijiff ArenA and Bern, Switzerland–before it was ultimately canceled.
