Shock: Mick Jagger is Human, Cancels All Upcoming Rolling Stones Tour Dates Due to Mystery Illness, Promises to Be Back on Stage Soon


What a shock: Mick Jagger is human. I am kidding, but Jagger has always been the picture of health. But now he says the Stones North America-Canada tour must be postponed on doctor’s orders.

Jagger writes on Twitter: “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 stage as soon as I can. Once again, huge apologies to everyone.”

There’s no other information on Jagger’s illness. Of course, everyone is hopeful that whatever it is (prostate?) is healed quickly and comfortably. At 76, Mick has been a health nut. He never did drugs, never smoked in any big way, and has exercised like crazy.

Mick, wild horses won’t keep you away. Sending the best thoughts and (I know everyone hates this) prayers.
