More than two years since the initial March 2020 lockdown, Covid continues to cause problems on the touring industry, from small indie bands to the biggest acts in the world.

On the massive end, The Rolling Stones have postponed tonight's (6/13) show in Amsterdam as Mick Jagger tested positive after experiencing symptoms. "The Rolling Stones are deeply sorry for tonight's postponement," the band wrote in a statement, "but the safety of the audience, fellow musicians and the touring crew has to take priority. The show will be rescheduled for a later date. Tickets for tonight's show will be honored for the rescheduled date. Standby for details." The Stones' next scheduled show is Friday, June 17 in Bern, Switzerland. All scheduled dates are listed below.

Meanwhile, Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band postponed the remainder of the current leg of their US tour due to two members of the band testing positive for Covid. "Things happen," Ringo wrote. "I send you all peace and love and thank you to all the people who came to the shows." His All-Star Band on this tour includes Warren Ham, Edgar Winter, Colin Hay, Hamish Stuart, Gregg Bissonette, and Steve Lukather.

The 12 postponed June dates for Ringo included Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Richmond, and Atlanta and will be rescheduled for September when the tour is already set to pick back up. Ringo Starr dates are listed below.
