“Mick has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time, as he needs medical treatment,” the British band said in a statement Saturday. “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.”
The Rolling Stones was scheduled to kick off the North American leg of the “No Filter” tour in Miami, Florida on April 20. The group was also set to perform at the 50th anniversary of the New Orleans Jazz Festival on May 2.
Jagger, 75, apologized to his fans.
“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,” Jagger tweeted. “Once again, huge apologies to everyone.”
I’m so sorry to all our fans in America & Canada with tickets. I really hate letting you down like this.
