Rolling Stones cancel Australian show over Jagger illness

The Rolling Stones have cancelled this Saturday’s concert at Hanging Rock – near Melbourne, Australia – after frontman Mick Jagger developed a throat infection this week.

The band reports Jagger 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.

“The Rolling Stones are incredibly disappointed to cancel the Hanging Rock gig and to disappoint their fans but were left with no other option,” said a spokesman for the group.

The band’s next scheduled show is in Sydney on November 12.

All fans who purchased tickets from Ticketmaster, the only official ticket outlet for the Hanging Rock show, will receive a full refund:

Tickets purchased through a credit card that is still valid/current will receive an automatic refund within 10 working days.

If your credit card has expired please contact Ticketmaster and a cheque will be arranged: Call 136 100 or go to

If you purchased tickets from an outlet, return to the outlet to obtain a refund.

The Rolling Stones recently opened their delayed Australian tour at the Adelaide Oval in Adelaide.

The fall shows were rescheduled from this past spring following the sudden passing of Jagger’s longtime girlfriend, L’Wren Scott.
