The Rolling Stones postponed their concert in Amsterdam on Monday night after frontman Mick Jagger fell ill and tested positive for COVID-19.

According to a statement from the band, Jagger began experiencing symptoms upon arriving to Johan Cruijff ArenA. “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,” the band said.

In a separate statement posted to his personal Twitter account, the 78-year-old Jagger added: “I’m so sorry that we’ve had to postpone the Amsterdam show with such short notice tonight. I have unfortunately just tested positive for COVID. We aim to reschedule the date ASAP and get back as soon as we can.”

Update: As Jagger is adhering to a five-day quarantine period, The Rolling Stones have also postponed their show scheduled in Bern, Switzerland on June 17th.

The Rolling Stones launched their 60th anniversary tour earlier this month, with plans to play stadium shows across the UK and Europe through the end of July. The band is currently scheduled to resume the tour on June 21st in Milan.

Consequence has reached out to The Rolling Stones’ representatives for additional information.

Mick Jagger’s Rolling Stones bandmate, Keith Richards, recently blasted Eric Clapton for his vaccine skepticism. “I just want to get rid of this damn thing, and the only way I can see is everybody does as doctor says,” Richards said in an interview back in March.
