The Rolling Stones have postponed a show that was due to take place tonight in New York , as Mick Jagger has been given doctor’s orders to rest his voice.
Tonight’s postponement follows the cancellation of the Stones’ concert at New Jersey’s Boardwalk Hall last Friday (October 27) also due to Jagger’s ill health.
The New Jersey show is now to take place on November 17 while tonight’s show at the intimate Beacon Theatre has not been rescheduled as yet.
The Stones’ singer suffered laryngitis this summer, causing disruption to the band ‘s tour dates in Spain.
The Rolling Stones started the “A Bigger Bang” world tour in August 2005, and they expect – health allowing – to finish the tour with a bang in Hawaii on November 22.
Despite Mick’s ailing throat, The Stones played as part of former US president Bill Clinton’s 60th birthday celebrations, also at the Beacon Theatre on Sunday (October29).
The band were joined onstage by White Stripes and Raconteurs singer Jack White, pop superstar Christina Aguilera and legendary blues guitarist Buddy Guy.
