Rolling Stones postpone more European shows

Keith Richards' recovery means tour kicks off late

The Rolling Stones have been forced to postpone the first 15 shows of their summer tour.

The band had originally put back their tour until June – postponing their Spanish dates – however they will now not hit the road until July.

The dates have been put back while Keith Richards recovers from brain surgery. The guitarist required an operation after reportedly falling out of a tree in Fiji.

The postponed dates are:

Barcelona Stadi Olimpic Montuic (may 27)

Madrid Estadio Vicente Calderon (29)

Brussels King Bauduin Stadium (June 1)

Paris Stade de France (3)

Bergen Koengen (6)

Horsens Forum Horsens (8)

Gothenburg Nya Ullevi (10)

St Petersburg Kirov Stadium (13)

Brno Vystaviste (16)

Warsaw Airport Bemowo (18)

Vienna Ernst Happel Stadion (20)

Milan Stadio Giuseppe Meazza (22)

Athens Olympic Stadium (25)

Paris Stade de France (July 2)

Zagreb Maksimir Stadium (5)

Ticket holders are told to hang on to their tickets as rescheduled dates will be announced “in the next few days”, meanwhile the tour “will now kick off at the beginning of July at a venue and city to be announced”.
