The Rolling Stones’ concert on Monday at Johan Cruijff ArenA in Amsterdam has been cancelled. Frontman Mick Jagger has an aura and therefore cannot perform. A spokesman for the Dutch event organizer Mojo confirmed this to the ANP news agency.
According to the party organizer, there will be a new date. Tickets purchased for the show remain valid.
Jagger only found out he had the virus when he actually arrived at the Johan Cruyff Arena. The band said in a statement on the Instagram website that the 78-year-old singer developed some symptoms and then tested positive. They may be mild complaints.
The Stones regrets that the concert cannot take place. “But the safety of the audience, musicians and touring crew is more important,” the band said. The show was canceled hours before its launch on Monday. Some fans were already in the stadium.
Monday night’s concert is part of the SIXTY European Tour, marking the Rolling Stones’ 60th anniversary. This will be the first time in five years that a British rock band has performed in the Netherlands again.
The Rolling Stones’ Belgian concert is scheduled for July 11th at the King Baudouin Stadium.
