Rolling Stones tour delayed

The Rolling Stones have postponed their tour of the United States and Canada so that lead singer Mick Jagger can receive medical care.

The band on Saturday abruptly announced its decision to delay the tour, which it said was doctor's orders.

A statement from the band read Mick Jagger "cannot go on tour at this time" due to a needed quote "medical treatment" -- no more details were provided about his condition.

The singer lamented to his 1.6 million followers on Instagram, saying "I really hate letting you down like this." Though he also said but said he'd be "working very hard to be back on stage" soon.

The 75-year-old rock star was expected to make a full recovery, the band's publicist said.

The band's North American tour had been scheduled to run from April 20 until June 29.

Fans have been told they can hold onto their tickets for future rescheduled shows.
