Bryan Adams tested positive for COVID upon arrival at Milan Malpensa Airport
MILAN ‘- Bryan Adams tested positive for COVID-19 upon his arrival at Milan Malpensa Airport on Thursday, ahead of the unveiling of the Pirelli 2022 calendar he photographed.
The Canadian rock ‘n’ roller revealed the positive test in an Instagram post that included a photo of him in a room after being tested, then sitting in an ambulance, being taken away for a more reliable PCR test. He was seated normally, wearing a surgical mask.
“Here I am, just arrived in Milan and tested positive for the second time in a month for COVID,” Adams said in the post. “So it’s off to the hospital for me.” He thanked the fans for his support.
Adams, who also has a career as a photographer, shot the Pirelli 2022 calendar, having initially been hired to shoot the 2021 version which was canceled due to the pandemic. Adams was scheduled to appear at in-person press events promoting the calendar on Sunday and Monday, but it was now uncertain.
Normally, the Pirelli calendar unveiling is a gala event attended by those who appear and other VIPS, but this year was already a reduced affair due to the ongoing pandemic, with a tight guest list for a cocktail party in. evening.
Adams chose other musical talents, including Iggy Pop, Cher, Jennifer Hudson, Saweetie and St. Vincent, as subjects for the “On the Road” calendar.
