It was recently reported how The Rolling Stones had to postpone a concert on their highly anticipated ‘Sixty’ tour due to lead singer Mick Jagger catching the virus that caused the worldwide pandemic. The group was scheduled to play in Amsterdam at the Cruijff Arena before the news broke. This lead the group to put out a statement that read the following.
“The Rolling Stones have been forced to call off tonight’s concert in Amsterdam at the Johan Cruijff ArenA, following Mick Jagger testing positive after experiencing symptoms of the virus upon arrival at the stadium.
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 show will be rescheduled for a later date. Tickets for tonight’s show will be honored for the rescheduled date. Standby for details.”
In a follow-up to this story, iconic bandmate as well as co-founder and guitarist for The Rolling Stones, Keith Richards, who was recently partying with Jagger in Spain, issued a simple response on the matter by saying on social media via Twitter: “We’ll be back, stay tuned.”
In other news regarding The Rolling Stones, during a recent interview with Music Radar, keyboardist for The Rolling Stones, Chuck Leavell discussed the relationship between Keith Richards and Mick Jagger.
“They’re brothers. Brothers. I read an interview with Mick and they asked him about that, and he said that the older they get, they realize that whatever conflict here and there they may have had in the past is not there anymore. To see them together with Ronnie in rehearsals laughing it up, going off and playing a blues song, and Mick grabbing a harmonica and playing so beautifully… They’re brothers. I think we’re all brothers at this time.”
