Rolling Stones Scrap Tour as Mick Jagger Seeks Medical Treatment

(Bloomberg) -- The Rolling Stones have postponed their upcoming tour of the U.S. and Canada after Mick Jagger was advised by doctors that he requires treatment for a medical issue and can’t hit the road.

The 75-year-old frontman is expected to make a complete recovery from the unspecified condition, “so that he can get back on stage as soon as possible,” the band said in a statement on Saturday.

The aging rockers were slated to kick off their “No Filter” stadium tour April 20 in Miami and remain on the road through late July. Fans have been encouraged to hold on to their tickets for when the band reschedules the dates.

Jagger apologized to fans in a tweet. “I really hate letting you down like this,” he said.
