It was only a few short months ago when we discussed the return of the legendary Rolling Stones (seen HERE). Sadly, it was just a short while ago that this tour was postponed in full based on Mick Jagger being ill. Alas my friends, the British aren’t coming. Read on to the Official Statement as culled from their website.
The Press Release:
Unfortunately today the Rolling Stones have had to announce the postponement of their upcoming US / Canada tour dates – we apologise 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.
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.
“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 the road as soon as I can. Once again, huge apologies to everyone.” – Mick Jagger

PiercingMetal Thoughts: At the time of this news item there is no discussion of a rescheduling and more a focus on Mick getting back to the best of health. I am sure that Live Nation or however you obtained your tickets will let you know about what to do in terms of a refund or keeping them fora new date. Get well soon Mick.
