he Rolling Stones postponed two shows on their 60th anniversary tour this week after Mick Jagger tested positive for Covid.

It was just hours before the rock icons' scheduled performance at Amsterdam's Johan Cruyff Arena on Monday that Jagger revealed his Covid positive diagnosis.

"I'm so sorry that we've had to postpone the Amsterdam show with such short notice tonight," the Rolling Stones lead singer wrote on Instagram. "I have unfortunately just tested positive for Covid. We aim to reschedule the date ASAP and get back as soon as we can. Thank you all for your patience and understanding."

In an update on Instagram later, Jagger said he's feeling "much better" and is on track "to get back on the stage next week." He also announced that the Amsterdam show has been rescheduled for July 7.

The band also postponed their June 17 show at Wankdorf Stadium in Bern, Switzerland.

"The Rolling Stones are deeply sorry for this postponement, but the safety of the audience, fellow musicians and the touring crew has to take priority," the band said in a statement on Twitter.

The new date for their gig in Bern will be announced soon. Ticket holders for that show have been advised to hold on to their tickets for future use.
