The Rolling Stones have postponed tonight’s concert in Amsterdam at the Johan Cruijff ArenA after Mick Jagger tested positive for COVID-19 after experiencing symptoms upon arrival at the venue.
In a statement shared by the band, they wrote, “The Rolling Stones have been forced to call off tonight’s concert in Amsterdam at the Johan Cruijff ArenA, following Mick Jagger testing positive after experiencing symptoms of COVID upon arrival at the stadium.”
They went on to add, “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.” In conclusion, “The show will be rescheduled for a later date. Tickets for tonight’s show will be honored for the rescheduled date. Standby for details.”
The Rolling Stones kicked off their Sixty tour on June 1 at Wanda Metropolitano, where they debuted their 1966 song, “Out Of Time.” Then, the legendary ensemble picked things up and traveled to Munich for a gig on June 5. The band followed up with their third tour stop at Liverpool’s Anfield, where they dusted off a cover of The Beatles, “I Wanna Be Your Man.” Tonight’s performance was slated to be the fourth stop of the band’s European jaunt but has since been postponed due to Jagger’s positive test results.
