Prior to the news, Bryan Adams has got all of his immunizations, which is a comfort.
The Canadian artist stated on Instagram, “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 the hospital for me. Thanks for all your support 🙏🏻 #sohappyithurts.”
Back in October, he was scheduled to sing “It’s Only Love” with H.E.R. in honor of Tina Turner, who was inducted into the Hall of Fame. His last-minute departure necessitated a rearrangement, with Keith Urban taking his place.
Adams was “fully vaccinated and has no symptoms at all,” his spokesman told Billboard at the time of the diagnosis.
Last year, the “Run to You” singer received backlash for a social media outburst over the coronavirus, which he shared with a video of himself playing guitar and singing “Cut Like a Knife” from 1983 while self-isolating at home.
Adam wrote at the time, “Tonight was supposed to be the beginning of a tenancy of gigs at the @royalalberthall, but thanks to some f—ing bat eating, wet market animal selling, virus making greedy bastards, the whole world is now on hold, not to mention the thousands that have suffered or died from this virus.”
The caption, which has since been modified, mentions various unsubstantiated, problematic hypotheses regarding how COVID-19 started, including the allegation that it was caused by someone eating a bat or an animal bitten by a bat. He concluded the post by saying, “My message to them other than ‘thanks a f—ing lot’ is go vegan.”
The record producer shared another video on Instagram later that month, this time saying sorry for his remark, “Apologies to any and all that took offence [sic] to my posting yesterday,” he composed.
No excuse, I just wanted to have a rant about the horrible animal cruelty in these wet-markets being the possible source of the virus, and promote veganism. I have love for all people and my thoughts are with everyone dealing with this pandemic around the world.”
