The Rolling Stones was forced to cancel their concert, supposed to be held Monday August 14th in the northern city of Valladolid, after lead singer Mick Jagger was diagnosed with laryngitis over the weekend and was ordered by his doctors to rest his voice.
Carmen Carnero, a spokeswoman for the show's promoter, said that the British rock band had sold 37,000 tickets for the scheduled concert at the city's Zorilla soccer stadium. So far, there has yet any replacement date announced which may indicate the Stones would not make up the show. Though so, the band has announced plans to issue full refunds on all tickets purchased for the sold-out show.
"I'm very sorry to be canceling this show," Jagger said on the group's Website. "I always love playing in Spain, but unfortunately I have no other choice and I apologize to everyone who bought tickets for tonight." Meanwhile, the Stones are next scheduled to play Wednesday in El Ejido, in southern Spain, as part of their "A Bigger Bang" world tour.
