The Rolling Stones continue to postpone shows after Mick Jagger tested positive for COVID.
The group released the following statement on its website’s social media in the early hours of June 14:
“The Rolling Stones have been forced to postpone their upcoming concert in Bern, Switzerland at Wankdorf Stadium on Friday June 17, after Mick Jagger tested positive for COVID.
The Rolling Stones are deeply sorry for this postponement, but the safety of the audience, other musicians and the touring crew must come first.
The Stones Milan show on Tuesday June 21 at the San Siro Stadium continues and will go ahead as scheduled.
The Bern show will be postponed to a later date. Ticket holders should keep their tickets. Tickets for the June 17 performance will be honored for the rescheduled date. Details of the postponement will be announced as they become available.
News broke yesterday (June 13) that Jagger had tested positive for COVID, leading to the postponement of the Stones show in Amsterdam. Jagger released his own personal statement saying, “I’m so sorry that we had to postpone the Amsterdam show on such short notice tonight. Unfortunately, I have just tested positive for COVID. We aim to reschedule this date as soon as possible and return as soon as possible. Thank you all for your patience and understanding.”
