SIR Mick Jagger has tested positive for Covid, forcing the Rolling Stones to cancel their show last night.
The singer, 78, fell ill after the veteran rockers flew to Amsterdam yesterday.
Their Sixty tour, which will include 14 shows in ten European countries, will take place in Hyde Park, London on June 25th.
Last night Sir Mick wrote to fans: “I am so sorry that we had to postpone tonight’s show at such short notice.
“Unfortunately I have just tested positive for Covid. We want to reschedule the appointment as soon as possible and come back as soon as possible.
“Thanks for your patience and understanding, Mick.”
Earlier, a statement on behalf of the band said: “The Rolling Stones deeply regret the postponement tonight, but the safety of the audience, fellow musicians and touring crew must come first.”
It said tickets would be honored for the postponed date. Sir Mick is touring with bandmates Keith Richards, 78, Ronnie Wood, 75, and Steve Jordan, 65.
The Stones returned to the British stage at Liverpool FC’s Anfield on Thursday.
Only those who can prove that they have been fully vaccinated, usually with a third booster vaccination, are allowed to enter the Netherlands.
