Canadian musician Bryan Adams says he has once again tested positive for COVID-19, less than a month after pulling out of a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame performance because of a positive test.
On Thursday, Adams issued an Instagram post saying he had tested positive “for the second time in a month” after arriving at the Milan Malpensa Airport in Milan, Italy.
The rocker wrote that he was “off to the hospital” and then followed up with a post-Friday showing healthcare workers in head-to-toe personal protective equipment administering what he described as a precautionary “anti-thrombosis” shot.
After testing positive for the disease, Adams ducked out of a scheduled Oct. 30 appearance at the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio.
Bryan Adams’ management team said at the time, he was fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and not experiencing any symptoms.
Adams’ upcoming album is called “So Happy it Hurts,” and his website lists tour dates through the United Kingdom and Europe beginning on Jan. 29, 2022, as well as a show in Vancouver on Dec. 31.
The “Summer of ’69” singer had just concluded a 10-day run of shows in Las Vegas before his positive test in Milan.
“Tonight is the first show for me in nearly two years,” Adams wrote in an Instagram post on Nov. 10, the first night of his Las Vegas stint. “The irony was getting Covid just before this run started (with no symptoms); it’s almost as if it was planned.”
