The Rolling Stones are postponing upcoming tour dates in the United States and Canada so that frontman Mick Jagger can receive medical treatment.

The band made the announcement Saturday morning.

“Mick has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time, as he needs medical treatment,” said a statement from the band.

“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.”

The band didn’t specify why Jagger, 75, needs medical treatment.

Jagger shared a personal apology on Twitter, saying he is “so sorry to all our fans in American & Canada with tickets. I really hate letting you down like this.”

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.

The North American tour dates were set to start April 20.

The statement from the band said fans should hold on to their tickets, “as they will be valid for the rescheduled dates, which will be announced shortly.”

This isn’t the first time the Rolling Stones have had to cancel tour dates for medical reasons.

Guitarist Keith Richards, for example, once fell out of a coconut tree while on vacation, resulting in a concussion and postponed shows.
