THE ROLLING STONES

have cancelled a concert in BANGKOK after a technical snag grounded their crew’s plane in BOMBAY.

The band earlier cancelled what would have been their first concerts in China because of the SARS outbreak.

The flu-like disease has infected at least 2,400 people worldwide and killed at least 100 people, mostly in Asia.

The crew was set to fly from Bombay to the Thai capital of Bangkok today (April 10) but their aircraft developed a technical problem before they could board, said Indian promoter Dilip Doshi.

Doshi added the band’s 150-strong entourage would now stay overnight in Bombay and an announcement would be made later regarding a new Bangkok date.

A senior security official at the Bombay airport confirmed that the flight could not take off due to a technical glitch detected before take-off. It wasn’t clear what the problem was.
