The Rolling Stones were forced to postpone their tour because Mick Jagger is currently receiving medical treatment and has been advised not to tour by his doctor.
Jagger sent out a message to his fans on Twitter apologizing for the postponement. In his tweet he said, “I really hate letting you down like this. I am devastated for having to postpone the tour but I will be working hard to be back on stage as soon as I can.”
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.
