The Rolling Stones Postpone Tour As Mick Jagger Receives ‘Medical Treatment’

The Rolling Stones are postponing their upcoming No Filter Tour as frontman Mick Jagger seeks medical treatment for an unspecified health issue.

The band made the announcement early Saturday morning via social media.

Informing fans that the postponed dates will be rescheduled, a message posted on the band’s official Twitter account says that “Mick has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time, as he needs medical treatment. 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 band’s 75-year-old frontman apologized to fans, writing 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.”

Jagger’s band mates Ronnie Wood and Keith Richards later took to Twitter to send the singer their support.

The Stones’ No Filter tour was to have kicked off in Miami on April 20, with postponed dates including an outdoor show on June 29 at Burl’s Creek Event Grounds in Oro-Medonte, Ontario.
