Since the New Year kicked off with a cancelled show due to RS testing positive for COVID, just wanted to a post a quick “Get Well soon, RS!” message (and a little message for 2022: “Really? C’mon, we had such high hopes for you, can’t you be more like 2019? This is not a good first impression!”)
Felt a little crappy today and turns out I tested positive for Covid. Not able to perform tonight at Foxwoods. For the safety of my band, crew, venue staff, and all of my amazing fans, I’m isolating, taking Tylenol and drinking lots of green tea. So bummed!— Rick Springfield (@rickspringfield) January 1, 2022
Hopefully he was able to safely get back home to recuperate and that it’s a very mild case that he recovers from quickly (and that nobody else gets sick).
Hopefully 2022 shapes up quickly to bring more positive news (but not more COVID-positive news.)
