Stones cancel Spanish date
13:30 15 August 2006
The Rolling Stones were forced to cancel a Spanish concert last night (14.08.06) after singer Mick Jagger was laid low with laryngitis.
The veteran rockers were due to play in Valladolid but pulled out at the last minute after Jagger was advised not to perform by doctors.
In a statement, Jagger said: "I am very sorry to be cancelling this show. I always love playing in Spain, but unfortunately I have no other choice and I apologise to everyone who bought tickets."
The band will refund the 37,000 tickets sold for the show.
Jagger, 63, has been hit by throat problems on previous Rolling Stones' tours and recently confessed he had started taking singing lessons after 35 years of performing.
The band's show at London's Twickenham stadium this weekend is expected to go ahead.
