Stones cancel again
13:30 20 June 2006
The Rolling Stones have cancelled another date on their summer tour because of guitarist Keith Richards' ill health.
The legendary rockers originally delayed the July 14 concert in Frankfurt to give Richards time to recuperate after he fell out of a palm tree in Fiji.
However, the band have now had to cancel the show completely.
German tour promoter, Peter Rieger, said: "There was a problem finding free dates at the Frankfurt stadium that worked for the tour."
The 'Start Me Up' rockers have already been forced to cancel concerts in Nuremberg and Leipzig.
Richards, 62, was hospitalized with a brain haemorrhage and had to have an operation to drain blood from his brain after tumbling out of a tree during a break from touring.
The rescheduled final leg of the 'A Bigger Bang' tour will now kick off in Milan on July 11, followed by shows in Berlin on July 21, London on August 20 and 22 before concluding in Denmark, on September 3.
Shows in Barcelona, Brussels, Gothenburg, St Petersburg, Warsaw, Athens and Zagreb are still waiting to be given new dates.
