Jon Bon Jovi & Bryan Adams Cancel Gigs Following Positive Covid Tests


Jon Bon Jovi and Bryan Adams were forced to cancel their shows over the weekend after the pair tested positive for Covid-19.

Bon Jovi was just hours away from performing at his gig in Miami on Saturday night (Oct 30). Fans were also already at the stadium before it was cancelled. The event was called “Runaway With JBJ”.

Bon Jovi was set to perform an acoustic, story-driven performance. He also set to have a Q&A session, photo-op and Halloween costume party.

A representative for the singer has said that he is “fully vaccinated and feeling fine”.

Bon Jovi has always been a strong supporter of Covid safety measures. His bandmate Dave Bryan tested positive for Covid last March.

Also having to cancel his gig was Canadian rocker Bryan Adams. The Summer Of 69 singer was due to perform at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last Saturday. He was due to join H.E.R on stage to perform “It’s Only Love”. This was to pay tribute to recent Hall of Fame inductee Tina Turner.

Turner and the likes of Foo Fighters and Todd Rundgren were nominated in the performer category. More on that here.

Turner also worked with Adams on that 1995 hit.

He is “fully vaccinated and has no symptoms at all”, a representative for Adams also added.

Last month, Bryan Adams also released the titled track for his latest album, which will arrive in March 2022. The album is called “So Happy It Hurts” and will be the legend’s 15th studio album.

“The title song ‘So Happy It Hurts’ is about freedom, autonomy, spontaneity and the thrill of the open road. The album of the same name touches on many of the ephemeral things in life that are really the secret to happiness and, most importantly, human connection”, Adams said of the album.

Back in July, Bon Jovi’s track “It’s My Life” also surpassed 1 billion YouTube views. More here.
