The Rolling Stones have been forced to cancel all four concerts planned for Spain due to illness. The concerts which were planned for Barcelona, Madrid, Valladolid and El Ejido have been cancelled due to the lead singer, Mick Jagger, suffering from laringitis.
Although 20 lorries of equipment had arrived from Valladolid (where the concert had also been cancelled) all work on setting up the stage and special effects has been abandoned.
The Rolling Stones are hugely popular in Spain and over 50,000 tickets had already been sold for tonight’s concert with just 2,500 remaining unsold. It is hoped that the group will be able to reschedule the dates.
