Canadian singer Bryan Adams said on Thursday he had tested positive for COVID-19 after flying into Italy. Adams, who is also a photographer, came to Milan to promote Pirelli’s 2022 calendar, which he had shot.
“Here I am, just arrived in Milano and I’ve tested positive for the second time in a month for Covid. So it’s off to hospital for me,” he said in a post on Instagram, showing a photo of himself wearing a mask, sitting behind a table. “Thanks for all your support,” he said.
This marks the second time the singer has caught the virus in the past month. Recently, Keith Urban stepped in for Bryan Adams at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, which was held on October 30, after the latter was diagnosed with Covid.
The Canadian singer was set to perform in a medley of songs with Christina Aguilera, Mickey Guyton, H.E.R. honouring inductee Tina Turner but had to opt out of the ceremony last-minute due to a positive COVID-19 test, reported Variety.
At the time, Adams was tested in advance of arriving in Cleveland for the festivities. All participants in the Rock Hall ceremony were required to show a negative COVID test regardless of vaccination status. A representative for Adams confirmed the positive test.
