Mick Jagger delays upcoming Rolling Stones tour after a routine scan discovered something ‘untoward’, causing him to take a month off.
The Rolling Stones member announced the delay of the No Filter tour on Twitter on Saturday. He wrote, “I’m so sorry to all our fans in America & Canada with tickets. 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.”
A statement from his management said, “Unfortunately today the Rolling Stones have had to announce the postponement of their upcoming US/Canda tour dates. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes those who have tickets to shows but wish to reassure fans to hold onto these existing tickets, as they will be valid for the rescheduled dates, which will be announced shortly…”
It continued, “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.”
An insider told The Sun, “As happens ahead of every tour, Mick had a routine screening where something untoward was found. It is something that needs monitoring over the next month, and may require hospital treatment.”
Bandmate Ronnie Wood wrote on Twitter, “We’ll miss you over the next few weeks, but we’re looking forward to seeing you all again very soon. Here’s to Mick ~ thanks for your supportive messages it means so much to us.”
Jagger was diagnosed with acute traumatic stress disorder in 2014 after L’Wren Scott’s death.
