Stones 2019 Tour has been postponed - updated 5/16 with rescheduled dates

The upcoming tour has been postponed.

This was just posted on the band's official social media outlets a few minutes ago :


Unfortunately today the Rolling Stones have had to announce the postponement of their upcoming US / Canada tour dates - we apologise for any inconvenience this causes those who have tickets to shows but wish to reassure fans to hold onto these existing tickets, as they will be valid for the rescheduled dates, which will be announced shortly.

Mick has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time, as he needs medical treatment. 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.

“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 the road as soon as I can. Once again, huge apologies to everyone.” - Mick Jagger

I deserve a place in this thread, having posted the following yesterday:

Having followed closely, and with admiration, the skillfully targeted social
media marketing of the Stones' tours since 2012, I have to say I find the
non-marketing of the current tour more than a bit bizarre.

Either 1) I have vastly underestimated the Stones' current automatic appeal
in the USA to the event junky/bucket list crowd, or 2) this tour is about to be
delayed for some "unavoidable" reason.

I do too.  A smaller one though.
Okay, okay...I didn't call it yesterday.
But something sure was off this past week.

Usually, there is a lot of news, lot's of background chatter.
But everything dummied up real quick like over the last couple of days.  You expect the race horse to be shown off a bit before the actual race.

Gut wrenching.

Yes indeed. You'd wonder how long this was on the cards though.

Saying that, I think they had been posting social media statuses about rehearsals either starting or about to, in Miami.

The tour was due to finish three months from yesterday. Suffice to say that if theyre pulling a tour 3 weeks  before it starts knowing that Mick is incapable of performing until at least July then whatever the problem is, its pretty significant.

Those stadium shows will be a nightmare to reschedule.

Hope Mick gets well soon, whatever it is. Gutted for all the people who have tickets and flights/accommodation booked

I'm gutted by this news. I hope Mick is okay and that he makes full recovery from whatever is bringing him illness.

I had pit - tickets for Jacksonville and planned on seeing them in Philly and the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.  If Twickenham was the last time, it was a hell of great way to go out.  My added bonus was having a beer with Gazza and seeing his ticket upgrade in person.

Try not to get over-excited. The tour is merely postponed, not cancelled. Take the announcement at face value.

Could well just be something like a throat issue that requires treatment and a prolonged period of rest. He's had that before about 15 years ago - albeit it was after a tour and didnt cause anyone any inconvenience.

Facebook and Twitter. Its on the stones page and Mick's own account. I reposted it here and on our fb page about ten minutes after it was announced and quoted the source.

rs.com probably havent woken up yet.

I hope so Gazza but I suspect that is to keep the hounds aways. I hope I'm wrong but I worry it's a little more serious than that. For, of all people, the most dependable member of the band in every way, to be out for an extended period like this is concerning. What I hope it is is some sort of knee or hip type of thing that needs something like a replacement rather than something more serious.

JazzFest, being a festival date, will surely be cancelled.

Hopefully, if and when the Stones DO reschedule the tour dates, they'll fit in that long awaited return to N.O. somehow

Hang on to your tickets for now though, until the festival confirms whats happening

Could be as simple as that. He's 75 after all and those joints have taken quite a bit of punishment over the years (I remember Prince getting hip replacement surgery when he was about 50)

Mick may be the most 'dependable' band member in terms of overall health, but hes also the most indispensable.  Keith, Ronnie and Charlie could do an entire tour sitting down or can still perform if their voice is shot.  Mick can't.

Maybe its all just a ruse and the announcement of this news on this of all weekends is because Mick has taken a three month leave of absence to sort out Brexit as no one else can manage to do it.  Wink

Jazzfest definitely out. The last sentence in here is a bit more drastic than we may want to believe.


“The Rolling Stones’ much-touted appearance at the 2019 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival has been canceled, Jazz Fest said Saturday (March 30) amid reports that frontman Mick Jagger is ailing. The band scrubbed the entire North American leg of its No Filter tour.”

Dang, that sucks...but as Mick once said "it can't last forever", it's too bad it has to happen when everything was ready for a new tour.

In any case, get well Mick, we lov'ya !

EDIT - as a coincidence I watched the video I shot of FTC in Marseille this morning and was thinking how amazing it was to have witnessed that song live with my daughter a few feet away from Mick and Keith after first hearing it on a K7 as a teenager back in 83 or 84...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P-4H5bn8sgc
