Canadian rock star Bryan Adams revealed to his fans on social media Thursday that he has been infected with COVID-19 twice in one month, despite having been fully vaccinated against the virus.
The “Summer of ‘69” singer, who is also a photographer, was on a trip to Italy to promote a new calendar that he had taken pictures for when he made the announcement on Instagram that he was COVID-positive yet again while he was being taken to a medical facility in an ambulance.
“Here I am, just arrived in Milano, and I’ve tested positive for the second time in a month for Covid,” he said, pictured sitting upright while wearing a surgical mask. “So it’s off to the hospital for me.”
Adams, 60, was scheduled to appear at press events promoting the 2022 Pirelli calendar on Sunday and Monday; he had originally been slated to shoot the 2021 Pirelli calendar, but those plans were scrapped due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The calendar that Adams shot includes photos of stars such as Cher, Iggy Pop, Jennifer Hudson and Normani.
Adams was taken to a local area hospital to receive a more reliable PCR test to confirm a different positive COVID test that he had already taken upon arriving at Milan Malpensa airport.
Previously, Adams tested positive in October, forcing him to pull out of a performance at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.
