The Rolling Stones have postponed tonight’s (Aug. 5) concert in the Spanish coastal resort of Benidorm as frontman Mick Jagger succumbed to laryngitis, town officials said. The concert was to be the Stones’ last performance in Spain — where they are commonly known as “Los Rolling” — as part of their 40 Licks tour, which is due to end in London in mid-September.
While an official date for the rescheduled Benidorm concert was not immediately announced, Spanish media said it would take place on Sept. 19 and that tickets for the original show would remain valid.
Jagger, who turned 60 last month, and the rest of the Stones have already played to Spanish fans in Bilbao, Madrid and Barcelona.
Last week, the band took a brief break from its European tour to headline the Molson Canadian Rocks for Toronto concert.
