Mick Jagger has tested positive for COVID-19, forcing the Rolling Stones to cancel an upcoming concert in The Netherlands.

The rock legend, 78, announced the health news on Monday, just hours before the band was set to perform a show in Amsterdam.

Jagger arrived for rehearsals at Johan Cruijff Arena on Monday morning and was exhibiting Covid symptoms. A subsequent test revealed that he had come down with the virus.

“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 statement posted to Twitter.

The band are currently performing a series of shows across Europe, with their next gig scheduled for June 21 in Milan, Italy.

Jagger has not disclosed what symptoms he is exhibiting, nor their severity.

It was later revealed that the superstar has been rushed to New York’s Presbyterian Hospital where he underwent heart valve replacement surgery.

Back in 2019, The Rolling Stones were forced to cancel a slew of shows after Jagger announced he was suffering from undisclosed health problems.

He successfully recovered from the major operation.
