Bryan Adams’ battle with COVID-19 continues.
Adams, 62, announced on Thursday that he tested positive for COVID a second time this month. The Grammy-winning musician had recently arrived in Milan, Italy, for the 2022 Pirelli calendar reveal. The “Summer of ’69” singer selected and photographed the 12 musicians featured in this year’s calendar.
“Here I am, just arrived in Milano, and I’ve tested positive for the second time in a month for COVID,” Adams captioned the Instagram post. “So it’s off to the hospital for me. Thanks for all your support.”
Days later, Adams shared a followup post, featuring a member of the hospital’s medical staff outfitted in full protective garb.
“Day two in Milan, and my thanks to all the kind nurses and doctors that have been looking after me. Thanks to @pirelli who have been incredibly supportive as this is the culmination of two years work together. Our calendar comes out next week! The shot I’m being given is anti thrombosis, it’s precautionary until I test negative,” he wrote.
The Canadian musician then gave an update on his health as he appeared via video call at the 2022 Pirelli “On The Road” calendar launch on Monday, attended by ET Canada.
He shared, “I’m OK, it’s going to take some days [but] I should be OK in a couple of days, I hope.”
Adams later added: “It’s been an interesting launch, it wasn’t what I was expecting it to be. I wasn’t expecting to have COVID, but it is what it is.
“Thanks to everybody for the well-wishes.”
The hitmaker recently shared:
Adams previously tested positive for COVID ahead of his Tina Turner tribute performance at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in Cleveland on Oct. 30.
“Happy Halloween and thanks for all the well wishes,” Adams wrote the day after his planned performance. “Please don’t worry, yes I had the COVID and thankfully had no symptoms. Bunny my daughter had it too, with [a] bit of a sore throat for [the] night. But we’re good, and it has to be said.”
