The Rolling Stones postponed a Monday concert in Amsterdam after singer Mick Jagger tested positive for COVID-19, the band said in a statement.
“The Rolling Stones are deeply sorry for tonight’s postponement, but the safety of the audience, fellow musicians and tour crew must come first,” they said.
Jagger, 78, had shown symptoms after arriving at the Johan Cruijff ArenA in Amsterdam, the group said.
Representatives of Mojo Concerts, who had organized the band’s performance in the Netherlands, took the stage to inform the public about the ArenA, a football stadium, an hour and a half before the start of the concert.

“He can’t sing, he can’t act,” an anonymous announcer told fans. “There’s no show tonight…that’s how it is.”
Amsterdam was to be the fourth leg of the ‘Stones Sixty’ European tour, following an appearance in Liverpool on Thursday.
