In unfortunate news from the rock and roll world, The Rolling Stones just postponed their North American tour, including their one and only show in Canada. The Stones tour was due to kick off in Miami on April 20th but now that show and 16 others after it have officially been postponed. The move comes after Stones frontman Mick Jagger was told by doctors that he can't go on tour at this time due to some sort of medical issue.
Representatives for the band didn't go into detail on what the medical issue is but they did say that 75-year-old Mick Jagger is expected to make a full recovery. He is currently receiving treatment from his doctors, but again it is not known what the treatment is for. In a recent Instagram statement, Mick Jagger also remained quiet about his condition but apologized to fans.
He said, "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 get back on stage as soon as I can. Once again, huge apologies to everyone."
The North American leg of the tour was supposed to kick off only 20 days from now, on April 20th but now that won't be happening. Instead, they are postponing all 17 shows on their tour.
Unfortunately for Canadian fans, this includes the one and only show the band was slated to perform north of the Border.
In a surprising tour announcement, The Rolling Stones revealed earlier this year that they would be playing at Burl's Creek, a massive event ground in Oro-Medonte which is also the home of Boots and Hearts.
This show, which was originally scheduled for June 29th, was going to be the bands one and only Canadian stop on their entire tour and it was a massive deal for fans, who were quick to snap up all the tickets, meaning the show is currently sold out.
It's not clear when the new dates for the shows will be, but fans are advised to hold onto their tickets as they will still be valid for whatever the rescheduled dates are.
