Jagger, 78, made the announcement on social media, writing: “I’m so sorry 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.”
Fans were already arriving at Amsterdam’s Johan Cruijff Arena when someone came on stage to announce that the show was canceled only about an hour and a half before it was set to start, Variety reported.
The band apologized to fans on Instagram, writing: “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’s next scheduled concert is Friday in Bern, Switzerland- and has been canceled due to the coronavirus diagnosis. However, the band’s Milan concert is still scheduled to take place on June 21.
