Lots of support for Rob de Nijs who has to postpone goodbye due to corona

Rob de Nijs receives a lot of support from fans because he has been in hospital with corona. That is not nice, but extra sour: the singer has to postpone his sold-out farewell concert in the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam.

The farewell concert was scheduled for April 10 in the largest pop hall in the Netherlands. The 79-year-old Rob de Nijs announced on Twitter and Instagram that it really could not be otherwise. He is far from fit enough. Today it was announced that the beloved Dutch-speaking musician hopes to be able to do his goodbye performance ‘within a few weeks’.

Dear all, I have been in hospital with corona for the past week. Fortunately, things are going a bit better, but will have to rehabilitate in the near future. We will soon come up with a new date in connection with the farewell concert in the Ziggo Dome. Kind regards,” said the singer.

It’s Been Nice by Parkinson’s

Rob de Nijs has been suffering from Parkinson’s for some time. His last concert it’s been nice would be the end of his more than sixty year long career. Due to great interest, it was considered to schedule an extra concert. “We want to wait and see, Rob must not get sick,” said his wife Henriëtte Koetschruiter in January The Telegraph† She also expressed her fear of a corona infection with her husband. “Of course he can’t have corona,” she said when their 9-year-old son contracted the virus.

Last year, Rob de Nijs, together with Willeke Alberti, made a big impression on Matthijs van Nieuwkerk, in the program Matthijs Continues† It turns out he still has a lot of fans. This was also apparent from the fast ticket sales for the Ziggo Dome.

Sweet messages for Rob de Nijs (and also nasty ones)

The biggest fans of Rob de Nijs are obviously sorry that they can’t see their favorite on April 10. On Twitter, however, almost everyone wishes him the best of luck. Almost everyone, because an obituary also went around with the hashtags #boosterprik and #vaccinatiedode. And one Marianne worries about the next and asks The Telegraph: “Is this correct? If so, did you ask if low heart rate could be a side effect of vaccination? Mr Gillis had this too, didn’t he?” The newspaper is accused of being a sensationalist and that there should have been heart complaints. However, Rob de Nijs reports corona himself.

A collection of get well wishes would be more appropriate then. An overview:
