The Rolling Stones have postponed their upcoming North American tour because Mick Jagger has an undisclosed illness.
The band issued a statement Saturday that said Jagger "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."
Jagger, who is 75 years old, also tweeted, "I’m so sorry to all our fans in America and 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."
On Sunday, someone close to the band explained that Jagger is not ill but suffered "a physical injury as a result of his strenuous pre-tour preparations. Doctors have told him to take it easy and to concentrate on his recovery."
The trek was set to get underway April 20th in Miami. Fans are advised to hang on to their tickets as they will be good for the rescheduled date.
