Five-time Grammy winner Jon Batiste has tested positive for coronavirus just days after attending the Met Gala.

The 35-year-old singer has been forced to postpone his upcoming American Symphony performance at Carnegie Hall in New York City, which was due to take place on Saturday, as well as his role as bandleader on 'The Late Show' with Stephen Colbert.

"I thank all my supporters for their love and understanding. See you all soon," Batiste said in a statement.

The announcement comes just hours after the Jazz musician shared a photo of his seventh day of rehearsals for the concert.

"Day 7 in rehearsal ✨💯 I am grateful to share my first symphony at @carnegiehall #AmericanSymphony," he wrote on Instagram.

Batiste attended the Met Gala at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday, where he was on a table with the "Fatal Attraction" actress Glenn Close, among others.

This year's theme was "In America: An Anthology of Fashion" and the official dress code is gilded glamour and white tie.
