On Saturday, the Rolling Stones revealed that they would be postponing several American and Canadian tour dates due to singer Mick Jagger’s undergoing an unspecified “medical treatment.” According to the New York Times, the band’s official Twitter account broke the news early Saturday morning while promising that the postponed tour dates would be rescheduled. The announcement also insisted that Jagger would be making a “complete recovery.”
“Mick has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time, as he needs medical treatment,” read the band’s tweeted statement. “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.”
Meanwhile, Jagger, who is 75 years old, took to Twitter to address the situation. “I’m so sorry to all our fans in America & Canada with tickets. I really hate letting you down like this,” he tweeted. “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.”
The Rolling Stones have been performing across the globe as a part of their No Filter tour since 2017, when they played the first leg throughout Europe. The final leg of the tour consisted of several American and Canadian dates in Miami, Houston, Chicago, Denver and Toronto, as well as a stop at the New Orleans Jazz Festival in early May. With the latest announcement, however, it seems all of these stops have been postponed until further notice.
