The Rolling Stones announced on March 30 that their upcoming tour of North America would be postponed so frontman Mick Jagger, 75, could receive medical treatment.
A statement from the band, released on their website, reads:
"Mick has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time, as he needs medical treatment...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."

The Rolling Stones's tour was expected to begin on April 20, but will now be pushed back to indeterminate dates.
The band encouraged fans to hold onto their tickets, however, "as they will be valid for the rescheduled dates, which will be announced shortly."

The Rolling Stones have had to push back tour dates due to medical complications in the past, such as the time guitarist Keith Richards sustained a concussion when he fell out of a coconut tree.
