MIAMI BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - Jon Bon Jovi has left a venue in Miami Beach where he was scheduled to perform with his band after testing positive for COVID-19, 7News has learned.
The prolific rocker was set to perform with his band at the Loews South Beach on Collins Avenue and 16th Street on Saturday evening.
Prior to the start of the concert, a man took the microphone and announced that Bon Jovi had tested positive for COVID after he and other band members were given rapid tests.
The man said that “Jon feels great” but would not be performing and was headed “to bed.”
The other band members tested negative, according to the man on stage.
Video recorded by a 7News reporter captured Bon Jovi, surrounded by several other men, as he walked out of the hotel.
The singer got into a neon yellow Maserati driven by the man who made the announcement on stage, and the car pulled off.
However, the rest of the band stayed behind and played for the audience as scheduled.
