A scheduled Rolling Stones performance out of Amsterdam that was slated for June 13th was canceled after frontman Mick Jagger tested positive for COVID. According to The Gateway Pundit, all of the members of the band received their COVID jabs back in 2021.
The band made the announcement via Facebook and Twitter of the canceled show on the day it was meant to kick off, informing ticket holders that their original tickets would be honored at a later rescheduled date.
“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 COVID 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.”
While some of the comments posted in response bore some of the expected “get well soon” and the ilk, there were others who were genuinely peeved that the show was canceled, considering some had shelled out quite a bit of money in terms of travel and lodging to see the band.
One Twitter user posted in response, “Absolutely gutted for Mick and me and the thousands of people who spent thousands getting there. Spent nearly 2 grand getting there, money I couldn’t really afford, but I thought maybe it was the last time, maybe the last time. It would be great if someone could pick up the tab!!”
Another Twitter user pointed out the extremely late notification of eth show being canceled – namely because it was canceled on the day of the event – writing, “Pretty late to communicate, that asks for large compensation!”
Of course, there are those asking about what they’re supposed to do in the event they’re unable to make it out to Amsterdam for whenever the rescheduled show is announced – again, a perfectly reasonable inquiry.
But outside of folks bemoaning the extremely late notice of having the tour date canceled (and thus being stuck with a ticket that who knows when will be honored, as well as being out of costs associated with travel), there are those poking fun at the effectiveness of the COVID shots.
One Twitter user speculated, “Why do all the pro-vaxxers fall ill with Covid,” as well as other running jokes related to people who have either boasted about getting the jab and the sort are still cropping up with the ailment.
And like clockwork, there were also the habitual hermetic buzzkills in the mix, who are now two years into clamoring about how dangerous it is to go out to social events because COVID exists. Among those still singing the Fauci gospel was one user who wrote, “Congrats to everyone involved for hosting (and wanting to attend) in-person events with Covid around. You did it. Yay.”
It seems as though some will never get over the fear of COVID.
Red Voice Media would like to make a point of clarification on why we do not refer to any shot related to COVID-19 as a "vaccine." According to the CDC, the definition of a vaccine necessitates that said vaccine have a lasting effect of at least one year in preventing the contraction of the virus or disease it's intended to fight. Because all of the COVID-19 shots thus far available have barely offered six months of protection, and even then not absolute, Red Voice Media has made the decision hereafter to no longer refer to the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson substances as vaccinations.
