Sick Mick postpones Stones gig due to bug
SIR Mick Jagger has postponed the Rolling Stones’ concert at Twickenham today due to a flu bug.
It means disappointment for 50,000 fans after doctors ordered the Stones legend to rest his voice for two days.
But tomorrow’s show is still scheduled to go ahead, his representatives said.
"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," promised Jagger.
Doctors told the Stones frontman he must rest his voice if he was to make a complete recovery in time for Sunday’s concert.
Today’s show will be rescheduled for September 20.
Tickets issued for today’s event will be valid for the rescheduled performance.
The Rolling Stones are currently on their sell-out 40th anniversary "Licks" world tour.
It marks four decades since an embryonic version of the group first wowed blues fans at London’s Marquee Club in the 1960s.
The 11-date British leg is the finale of the 101-date global tour.
But it is the third time Sir Mick, who turned 60 last month, has had to pull out of a gig on the tour.
He cancelled a concert in Spain after coming down with laryngitis.
And earlier this week the Stones had to pull out of a concert in the Amsterdam Arena, Holland, after the band had already performed five shows singing to more than 180,000 fans.
