The Rolling Stones Have Postponed Their North American Tour So Mick Jagger Can Get Medical Treatment
Normally-very-spry elderly person Mick Jagger, 75, is sick so his band The Rolling Stones have had to postpone their upcoming North American tour, according to Rolling Stone. The Stones reportedly have a combined age of 294. No one is saying give it up but maybe preserve those so far unbroken hips by simplifying things a little with some acoustic guitars and perhaps some stools to sit upon.
Mick Jagger’s doctors told him that he shouldn’t be touring right now due to an ailment they won’t name.
“Mick Jagger has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time as he needs medical treatment,” the band’s publicist said in a press release. “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.
Mick himself says that he feels super-shitty about it and will try to be flapping those big lips around ASAP.
Jagger added in a statement, “I hate letting our fans down and I’m hugely disappointed to have to postpone the tour but am looking forward to getting back on stage as soon as I can.”

The postponed tour dates include scheduled shows in Miami, DC, Denver, Boston, Seattle, Chicago and Philadelphia.
More power to them for keeping on keeping on and getting those checks but their drummer Charlie Watts is 77 years old. Isn’t he tired? Chuck must have breathed a sigh of relief when he heard Mick was laid up. He can put his cardigan back on and go back to gardening for a little while longer before he gets his old ass dragged around the world for the 1,700th time.
