The 17 postponed shows were slated to begin in Miami on April 20. “Mick Jagger has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time as he needs medical treatment,” the band’s publicist said in a statement. “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 added, “I hate letting our fans down and I’m hugely disappointed to have to postpone the tour but am looking forward to getting back on stage as soon as I can.” On Twitter, Keith Richards said, “A big disappointment for everyone but things need to be taken care of and we will see you soon. Mick, we are always there for you!”
