“You can’t always get what you want,” the Rolling Stones famously sang 50 years ago. But if you wait a little while, and if all goes well, Miami fans of the “world’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll band” will still get to see the Stones on tour.
But on Saturday, the band’s publicist, Fran Curtis, issued a release to say that the Stones have had to postpone the next leg of its trans-continental No Filter tour, which had been scheduled to kick off in Miami Gardens at the Hard Rock Stadium on April 20.
“Mick Jagger 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,” Curtis’ email said.
In the statement Jagger, 75, said: “I hate letting our fans down and I’m hugely disappointed to have to postpone the tour but am looking forward to getting back on stage as soon as I can.”
The Stones’ rep didn’t say what led to Jagger’s medical condition.
Two of the postponed shows were set for Florida: April 20 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens and April 24 at the TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville.
Tour promoters AEG Presents/Concerts West advised that people who have tickets to attend the following shows should hold onto their existing tickets as they will be valid for the rescheduled dates.
In addition to the Florida dates, the postponed shows are: Houston’s NRG Stadium on April 28; the New Orleans Jazz Festival on May 2; Glendale’s State Farm Stadium on May 7; Pasadena’s Rose Bowl on May 11; Santa Clara’s Levi’s Stadium on May 18; Seattle’s Centurylink Field on May 22; Denver’s Mile High Stadium on May 26; Washington’s FedEx Field on May 31.
Also, June dates at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Field on June 4; Foxborough’s Gillette Stadium on June 8; East Rutherford’s MetLife Stadium on June 13 and 17; Chicago’s Soldier Field on June 21 and 25 and Canada’s Burl’s Creek Event Ground on June 29.
Need some Stones to tide you over in the meantime?
For South Florida fans who really are jonesing for live Rolling Stones at Hard Rock Stadium, a video and audio release issued last year contains nearly the entirety of the group’s Voodoo Lounge Tour that played the venue in November 1994.
The group’s label has also released yet another Stones compilation, this one a three-disc set called “Honk,” for some reason. “Honky Tonk Women” isn’t on the set because it focuses on material from 1971’s “Sticky Fingers” through the 2016 blues covers album, “Blue and Lonesome.”
Collectors may want the set for disc three since it contains 10 live tracks cut recently.

Manchester United target Hirving Lozano ‘dreams of joining club’
Pachuca president Jesus Martinez has said that the “dream” of Hirving Lozanois to represent Manchester United.
Lozano scored 44 times in 149 appearances for Pachuca in the early stages of his professional career before joining PSV Eindhoven in 2017.
The attacker has found the back of the net on 38 occasions in 68 games for PSV, while he also impressed for Mexico at the 2018 World Cup.
United are believed to be preparing an offer for the 23-year-old ahead of this summer’s transfer window, and Martinez has said that it would be a “dream” move for the winger.
“What I can say and guarantee is that Hirving has had a Manchester United scout watching him since he was 16,” Martinez told ESPN Deportes.
