The Rolling Stones are postponing the upcoming U.S. and Canada dates on their No Filter Tour so Mick Jagger can receive medical treatment, according to Variety. The Rolling Stones kicked off their ‘No Filter’ Tour in Ireland last May. The North American leg of the tour was expected to start April 20 in Miami.
“Unfortunately today the Rolling Stones have had to announce the postponement of their upcoming U.S./Canada tour dates,” The Rolling Stones announced on on Twitter. “We apologize for any inconvenience this causes those who have tickets to shows but wish to reassure fans to hold onto these tickets, as they will be valid for the rescheduled dates, which will be announced shortly.”
“Mick Jagger has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time as he needs medical treatment,” the band’s publicist said in a press release. “The doctors have advised Mick that he is expected to make a complete recovery so that he can get back on stage as soon as possible.”
Jagger, 75, is expected to make a full recovery. No further details of his condition were given.
“I’m so sorry to all our fans in America & Canada with tickets,” Jagger wrote on Twitter. “ I really hate letting you down like this. I’m devastated for having to postpone the tour but I will be working very hard to be back on stage as soon as I can. Once again, huge apologies to everyone.”.
