Stones Cancel Second Spain Show
Mon, 14 Aug 2006 09:40:39
With Mick Jagger's vocal chords still ailing, The Rolling Stones' have been forced to cancel their only other show in Spain. They already scrapped a performance scheduled for last night (August 14) in Valladolid, Spain; now they're skipping an August 16 show in El Ejido, which means they won't perform again until they head back home to London for a show on August 20.
"I am very sorry to be canceling this show," Mick said (well, wrote -- he still can't talk) in a statement. "I always love playing in Spain, but unfortunately I have no other choice and I apologize to everyone who bought tickets for tonight."
Jagger remains under doctor's orders to rest his famous vocal chords, which gave out despite his recent hiring of a vocal coach. The band is promising to refund all 37,000 tickets sold for the Valladolid gig, and is seeking a make-up date for the El Ejido show.
