Rolling Stones Postpone Tour Dates as Mick Jagger Seeks Medical Treatment
The postponed dates include the band's scheduled set at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, as well as the recently added shows planned for Canada Day weekend in Ontario.
The Rolling Stones are putting the North American leg of their international No Filter tour on hold due to the advisement of frontman Mick Jagger's doctors.
On Saturday, the group released a statement detailing their decision to postpone the tour, which was slated to start April 20 in Miami Gardens, Florida. The postponed dates include the Stones' scheduled set at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival Festival on May 2, as well as the recently added shows planned for Canada Day weekend on June 29 in Ontario.
Jagger — who is expected to make a full recovery — apologized profusely for the postponements on Twitter. He stressed that he was "devastated," but insisted that he'll be "working very hard to be back on stage as soon as I can."
According to tour promoters AEG Presents / Concerts West, tickets for the postponed concerts will be honored once the dates are rescheduled.
