The Rolling Stones on Saturday announced the postponement of the next leg of their trans-continental NO FILTER tour, which had been scheduled to kick off in Miami on April 20 and included a May 11 Rose Bowl performance.
“At this time, Mick Jagger has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time,” Rose Bowl Director of Communications Meredith Thomas said in an email.
The doctors have advised Jagger that he is expected to make a complete recovery so that he can get back on stage as soon as possible.
“I hate letting our fans down and I’m hugely disappointed to have to postpone the tour but am looking forward to getting back on stage as soon as I can,” Jagger said.
A music industry source told the New York Post that doctors discovered the problem when Jagger underwent a pre-tour check-up.
Tour promoters AEG Presents / Concerts West advise people who have tickets to attend these shows to hold onto their existing tickets as they will be valid for the rescheduled dates.
“This is not a serious thing,” a source close to the band told the Post, insisting fans should hold onto their tickets because The Stones are “in the process of rebooking” the 17 scrapped dates of the “No Filter” tour.
