The Rolling Stones are out on the ‘Sixty’ Tour across Europe this summer as a means of commemorating being a band for 60 years — but this week, the tour has hit a bit of a snag due to COVID-19.

First, Monday night’s show in Amsterdam had to be postponed due to front man Mick Jagger coming down with a positive test, as he shared on social media:

“I’m so sorry that we 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. Thank you all for your patience and understanding.”

The Stones’ social pages attributed Mick exhibiting COVID symptoms upon arriving at the stadium for the show, which explains the ‘late notice’ Mick made reference to.

As a result of Jagger coming down with COVID, the Stones went ahead and postponed the next scheduled date on the tour, this coming Friday, June 17 in Switzerland. As the band shared early Tuesday:
