The Rolling Stones would like to thank their Dutch fans on Twitter for a “wonderful evening”. The British band performed Thursday evening on stage at the Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam. The concert was scheduled to take place on June 13, but was postponed due to lead singer Mick Jagger being infected with Corona. This was the first time in five years that The Stones were in the Netherlands.
“Thank you Amsterdam! That was a great night – we made it!!” the band wrote on Twitter.
The 78-year-old singer had clearly read in the Dutch news. At the start of the concert, he said in Dutch that he was happy to have his fans at ArenA on Thursday night and not at France Bauer’s party.
He was referring to a video of a frustrated fan reacting emotionally after the show was canceled when Jagger tested positive for coronavirus shortly before the concert. And it sounded like ‘I’m going to France Bauer from now on, he’s always healthy’.
According to a number of fans, the singer also discussed the situation surrounding farmers in the Netherlands. Jäger asked again in Dutch: “Are there farmers in the room?” Then he said he hoped at least those farmers wouldn’t block the roads after the concert.
