Frontier Touring have announced that The Rolling Stones have been forced to cancel the next date of their Australian tour after singer Mick Jagger developed a throat infection. It is the second time this year the band has been forced to cancel in Australia.
“He is under strict doctor’s orders to rest his vocal chords for the next few days in order to recuperate for the remainder of the tour,” said the statement.
“This means the scheduled show at Hanging Rock near Melbourne on Saturday November 8 is unfortunately cancelled.”
A spokesman said: ‘The Rolling Stones are incredibly disappointed to cancel the Hanging Rock gig and to disappoint their fans but were left with no other option’.
The next scheduled show is Sydney on Wednesday November 12.
The statement continues:
