ROLLING STONES have postponed tomorrow’s concert at TWICKENHAM because MICK JAGGER is ill.
The band were due to come to the UK as part of their ongoing world tour, including a stadium date tomorrow evening.
A statement has been issued today, which reads: “The Rolling Stones have been forced to postpone their concert on Saturday, August 23 at London’s Twickenham Stadium due to Mick Jagger’s bout with the flu. Under strict doctor’s instruction, Jagger has been told to rest his voice for the next two days in order to make a complete recovery.”
“The Stones were looking forward to opening in the UK–for their hometown audience–with all guns blazing,” Michael Cohl, tour promoter said in a statement. “We’re sorry to disappoint the fans who were coming on Saturday.”
Sunday’s (August 24) Rolling Stones show at Twickenham Stadium will go ahead as scheduled.
Saturday’s postponed show will be rescheduled for September. The concert’s promoters had hoped to reschedule the postponed show in the following week, however, Twickenham stadium logistics and amenities were not available.
“The doctors tell me that I must have two more days rest–and after that, I will be completely recovered and ready for a full-on stadium show on Sunday,” Jagger said.
All tickets issued for the August 23 show will be valid for the rescheduled performance on September 20. Any queries should be referred to place of purchase.
