Rolling Stones postpone 2019 tour due to Mick Jagger’s medical treatment
The Rolling Stones announced that their 2019 tour is postponed because of Mick Jagger's need for medical treatment, Rolling Stone reports. "Mick Jagger has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time as he needs medical treatment," a statement from the band reads. "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."
"I'm so sorry to all our fans in America & Canada with tickets," Mick posted to Instagram. "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. Once again, huge apologies to everyone."
The 17 postponed shows were to begin on April 20 in Miami and run through June 29 in Ontario, Canada, and include two NYC-area dates at MetLife Stadium, June 13 and June 17, as well as Chicago, Philadelphia, Seattle, Houston and other cities. See the full list of postponed dates below.
