In a statement posted by the band on Saturday, it was revealed that Mick Jagger is in need of “medical treatment” and that his doctors have ordered that the Rolling Stones postpone their 17-show stadium tour so that the 75-year-old rock legend may receive medical care, as previously shared by The Inquisitr.
Jagger also posted to social media to apologize to fans for disappointing them, and he promised he will be back on stage as soon as possible.

While no reason for Mick Jagger’s ailment has been given, the rocker is expected to make a full recovery, Us Weekly reports. The U.S. leg of the Rolling Stones No Filter tour had been scheduled to start on April 20 in Miami.
Mick Jagger has long hinted about the day when his touring will eventually end, but the Rolling Stones continue to hit the road. Still, last year Time noted that Jagger had once said he’d “rather be dead” than still singing “Satisfaction” at age 45. Three decades later, the classic 1965 hit is still on the Rolling Stones’ setlist—and Jagger is 75. Now, fans won’t be satisfied until Jagger is on tour once again.
