The press:

The Rolling Stones have cancelled a concert in Spain after singer Mick Jagger was struck down by laryngitis.

The band were due to play a concert in Valladolid on Monday evening as part of their A Bigger Bang world tour. But doctors ordered Jagger to rest his voice after developing laryngitis over the weekend. Jagger said: “I always love playing in Spain, but unfortunately I have no other choice and I apologise to everyone who bought tickets.” He added: “I am very sorry to be cancelling this show.”

The Rolling Stones’ A Bigger Bang tour will continue as scheduled at London’s Twickenham Stadium on Sunday, followed by shows in Glasgow, Sheffield and Cardiff.
