Band resumes tour in Milan, Italy
The Rolling Stones are resuming their European Sixty Tour tomorrow night (Tues, June 21st) in Milan, Italy. This comes a week after the group was forced to postpone two shows due to frontman Mick Jagger’s COVID diagnosis.
“Thanks so much for all of your lovely messages, I really appreciate them,” Jagger says in a video statement. “I’m sorry for the inconvenience about the shows, but we’ll be on stage in Milan on Tuesday, so see you there.”
“The crew are busy setting up the stage in the glorious Italian sunshine, we can’t wait to see you at San Siro Stadium tomorrow night!” the group shares Monday (June 20th) on social media.
The classic group was forced to cancel a show in Amsterdam and Bern, Switzerland last week after Jagger tested positive with COVID symptoms upon arriving in Amsterdam on June 13th. The Amsterdam show has been rescheduled for July 7th, but the Bern show has been canceled.
“We regrettably have to announce that despite all the best efforts the Rolling Stones concert in Bern, Switzerland cannot be rescheduled and has now unfortunately been cancelled. The Stones concert promoters have worked extremely hard all week and tried everything they possibly could to find an alternative date or venue for the concert in Switzerland but sadly this was not possible,” they share in a social media statement.
“The band wish to send a huge apology to all the fans in Switzerland who bought tickets and are deeply saddened they cannot perform in Bern on this tour.”
Tickets for the show in Amsterdam will remain valid for the new date and with details to be emailed to ticketholders via Ticketmaster.
All tickets for the Bern show will be refunded between June 21st and July 17th from their point of purchase.
The band has played three of the fourteen dates of its 60th anniversary tour. The trek sees Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood make their long-awaited return to their home turf of the UK.
