“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,” Jagger said himself in a statement. The Stones’ No Filter Tour was expected to start April 20 in Miami. The postponed shows include two concerts at New Jersey’s Metlife Stadium, two concerts at Chicago’s Soldier Field and football stadium gigs in Denver, Washington DC, Seattle, Philadelphia and Foxborough, Massachusetts. The band will also not appear at 2019 New Orleans Jazz Fest.
To cover the Stones’ multi-million-dollar fee, the festival priced tickets for that day at $185, more than double as normal. Tickets will be valid for the rescheduled dates to be announced. No more details about Jagger’s condition were provided but he is expected to make a complete recovery. He is 75-year-old. The band formed in 1962. Jagger’s career has spanned over five decades. In 1989, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and in 2004 into the UK Music Hall of Fame.
