Oct. 31 (UPI) — Singer-songwriter Bryan Adams had to cancel his appearance at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Cleveland Saturday night because he tested positive for COVID-19.
Adams, 61, was slated to sing “It’s Only Love” with H.E.R. in honor of inductee Tina Turner, but his representative told Billboard.com he wouldn’t make the show.

The other inductees were the music artists Carole King, The Go-Go’s, Foo Fighters and LL Cool J, and music executive, entrepreneur and film producer Clarence Avant.
Celebrity presenters and performers included Paul McCartney, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, Lionel Richie, Mickey Guyton, Christina Aguilera, Angela Bassett and Drew Barrymore.
