Mick Jagger Forced To Postpone Rolling Stones Tour For Medical Treatment

Mick Jagger's health has forced The Rolling Stones to postpone their tour of North America.

The iconic band was scheduled to play a string of dates across the U.S. and Canada for their 'No Filter' tour, but an unnamed health condition has stopped the frontman from jumping on stage next month.

“Mick Jagger has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time as he needs medical treatment,” a rep for the band wrote on their Twitter account.

“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," the statement said.

Jagger apologised to fans on his own Twitter page for cancelling the 17 shows that were due to take place between April and June.

"I'm so sorry to our fans in America & Canada with tickets," the 75 year old wrote.

"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," he added.

Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood promised that the band would be back "very soon".

"Here's to Mick," he added, "thanks for your supportive messages it means so much to us."
