Mick Jagger Has 'Bad Laryngitis,' Rolling Stones Cancel Las Vegas Concert
Even a Rolling Stone has to stop once in a while.
Mick Jagger revealed on Twitter he's battling a “bad laryngitis,” meaning the Rolling Stones’ concert scheduled for Wednesday night (Oct. 19) at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena has been canceled.

According to a statement issued by the band, their frontman has been advised by doctors to rest his voice. “We hope to have information about the possibility of rescheduling this date very soon,” note reps for the Hall of Famers.
The British rock veterans' next tour date, this Saturday (Oct. 22) at the same venue, is unaffected at this stage.

The Stones headlined both weekends of Desert Trip at The Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, earlier this month. Toward the end of their set on the second weekend, Jagger’s voice noticeably cracked as he spoke between songs. which prompted a quip from the singer about the throat-wrackingly dry and windy climate.
The Stones will drop their first studio album in more than a decade, the all-blues set Blue & Lonesome (Interscope), on Dec. 2.
