Now, however, the Stones have announced that it is impossible for them to add a new date on site as part of their “Sixty Tour”, and they have “unfortunately” canceled the concert.
In a new statement, Mick and co said: “We sadly have to announce that despite all efforts, the Rolling Stones concert in Bern, Switzerland cannot be postponed and has unfortunately been cancelled.
“The Stones concert organizers worked extremely hard and tried everything to find another date or venue for the concert in Switzerland, but unfortunately that was not possible.
“The band would like to send a huge apology to all fans in Switzerland who have purchased tickets and are deeply saddened to be unable to perform in Bern on this tour. All tickets will be refunded from June 21 to July 17, 2022 since their point of purchase.
