Iconic Canadian musician Bryan Adams had tested positive for coronavirus.
Country star Keith Urban had stepped in for Adams at Friday’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
Adams was set to perform along with Christina Aguilera, Mickey Guyton, H.E.R. honoring inductee Tina Turner as well as recreate their duet “It’s Only Love” from his 1984 album, “Reckless” with H.E.R.
Sources told Variety that he pull out of the ceremony last-minute due to the positive diagnosis. All participants in the ceremony were required to show a negative coronavirus test regardless of vaccination status.
In a statement to the magazine, a rep for Adams confirms the news and noted he is fully vaccinated and showing no symptoms.
In a 1992 interview, the Canadian musician stated the duet happened after he received a call from Turner’s producer, John S. Carter, asking for a song for her album, 1984’s “Private Dancer”.
He pointed out that the duet transpired when he called her and asked if she wanted to do the song.
“She wanted me to play on her “Private Dancer” album and I was making “Reckless” and couldn’t get away. I thought maybe I could reciprocate by having her sing on ‘It’s Only Love’,” Adams added.
Adams and Turner’s friendship continued after that with him producing her Grammy Award-winning song, “Back Where You Started” and collaborated with her on the song “Why Must We Wait Until Tonight” from the movie “What’s Love Got to Do With It?”.
