We All Thought It Would Be Keef First – Rolling Stones Delay Tour Over Jagger Illness

Given the abuse Keith Richards has subjected his body to over the years all us observers thought it would be his that gave up first and finally broke up the Rolling Stones. But this latest delay they’re making to the US and Canada tour isn’t from him at all, it’s Mick Jagger who’s finding that age is catching up. Or at least, illness and we all know that age makes us more prone to that:

It’s not just that he’s crocked a knee or something, doctors are advising that he doesn’t tour:

[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””] A statement from the group said: “Unfortunately today the Rolling Stones have had to announcement 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 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. [/perfectpullquote]

No revelation is made as to what that treatment might be. One can speculate about what a 75 year old man might need of course:

Let the ill-informed speculation begin, eh?

I think everyone expected the problem to be the hard living Keef not the ballet class taking fitness freak Mick.

Could I hazard a guess that “USA Tour Cancelled Because Mick Doesn’t Want To Go” might lead to a number of US lawsuits, whereas “USA Tour Cancelled Because Doctors Insist That Mick Has Urgent Medical Treatment” might stand a chance of avoiding (or at least defending against) said lawsuits?

That is to be a cynic. But then the correct attitude toward modern life is “Am I being cynical enough?”

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
