The Rolling Stones are about to give some satisfaction to their fans after canceling performances of their European tour last week after Mick Jagger tested positive for COVID-19. On Monday, Jagger posted a video on Twitter saying that the tour would resume in Milan Tuesday night.

"Hi everyone. Thanks so much for all your lovely messages. I really appreciate them," Jagger, 78, says in the video. "And I'm sorry for all the inconvenience about the shows, but we'll be onstage in Milan on Tuesday, so see you there."
"The crew are setting up the stage in the glorious Italian sunshine, we can't wait to see you in San Siro Stadium tomorrow night!" the group shared in an Instagram post on Monday.

The Stones missed two concerts — in Amsterdam and in Bern, Switzerland — due to Jagger's illness. The Amsterdam show has been rescheduled to July 7, but the group announced that the Bern show has been canceled.

Jagger's COVID-19 diagnosis was announced on June 13 in a statement that said he had tested positive “after experiencing symptoms of COVID upon arrival at the stadium” on the outskirts of Amsterdam.

The legendary rockers have been performing throughout Europe with their "SIXTY" tour, which marks their six decades together. The tour is slated to wrap in Stockholm on July 31.
