Bryan Adams has tested positive for COVID-19 for the second time in a month and is receiving treatment at a hospital in Italy.
The Canadian rock star posted the news on his official Instagram account on Thursday after landing in Italy and being tested positive at Milan Malpensa airport. “Here I am, just arrived in Milan, and I tested positive for the second time in a month for COVID,” Adams wrote in the post. “So it’s going to the hospital for me.”
Adams had previously tested positive for COVID-19 on October 30, hours before the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony, where he was to perform the song “It’s Only Love” with HER in honor of the inmate Tina Turner. His exit at the last minute caused a reshuffle, with Keith Urban stepping in to replace him.
The “Baby When You’re Gone” singer arrived in Italy to launch and make press events for the 2022 edition of the iconic Pirelli calendar he had photographed. A longtime and reputable photographer, Adams’ shoot for the Pirelli calendar, popularly known as “The Cal”, was named On the road and recorded in Los Angeles and the topics included Iggy Pop, St. Vincent, Grimes, Rita Ora, Normani, Cher, Jennifer Hudson and Saweetie.
Adams was supposed to record the Pirelli calendar for 2021, but it was canceled due to the pandemic.
