Stones reschedule Dodger Stadium date

The Rolling Stones have pushed their Los Angeles concert date at Dodger Stadium back to Nov. 22.

The show, originally set for Nov. 18, was rescheduled after lead singer Mick Jagger, who has been plagued by throat problems during the Stones' tour, was advised to rest his voice for four days.

The Stones have also canceled a concert in Hawaii. The Nov. 22 date at Honolulu's Aloha Stadium was scheduled to end the second North American leg of the band's "Bigger Bang" world tour.

The trek will now end on Nov. 25 in Vancouver, which originally was set to host the Stones on Friday.

Additionally, Sunday's show in Oakland, Calif., has been postponed by a day to Nov. 6.

On Monday, the Stones announced that a rare club appearance scheduled for the next day at New York's Beacon Theatre had been delayed to Wednesday on the advice of 63-year-old Jagger's doctor. The rescheduled show, which is being taped for a DVD by director Martin Scorsese, will still go ahead, the spokeswoman said.

Last Friday, the Stones canceled a show in Atlantic City, N.J., just hours before show time when many fans had already descended on the gambling mecca from around the country. That show will take place on Nov. 17.

This is not the first time Jagger's throat has played havoc with the itinerary. In August, two shows in Spain were canceled due to his laryngitis. The European tour had already gotten off to a wobbly start, delayed by several weeks so that guitarist Keith Richards could recover from a head injury.
