The Rolling Stones have postponed their upcoming tour of the US and Canada because Sir Mick Jagger needs medical treatment, the band have said.
They were due to kick off the US and Canada leg of their No Filter tour at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida on 20 April, finishing at the Burl’s Creek Even Grounds in Ontario, Canada, on 29 June.
However, Sir Mick, 75, has been told by medics that he cannot perform but no details have been released about what the health issue is.
He wrote on Twitter: “I’m so sorry to all our fans in America & Canada with tickets. I really hate letting you down like this.
“I’m devastated for having to postpone the tour but I will be working very hard to be back on stage as soon as I can.
“Once again, huge apologies to everyone.”

The band told fans to hold on to their existing tickets as they will be valid for rescheduled dates.
In a statement they said that “Mick has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time, as he needs medical treatment”.
They added: “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.”
New dates will be announced “shortly”, the band added.
