The Stones Cancel 2nd Concert In Spain

(August 15, 2006) — The Rolling Stones have canceled a second concert in Spain while Mick Jagger recovers from a sore throat. Another date is being sought for the show, which had been scheduled Wednesday in the southern city of El Ejido, said Jose Hurtado, a spokesman for concert promoter Music Frog, on Tuesday.

Jagger developed laryngitis over the weekend and has been ordered by his doctor to rest his voice, the British rockers said in a statement on their Web site.

His illness forced the cancellation of a show Monday in the northern city of Valladolid.

Performances in Barcelona and Madrid were scrapped in May after guitarist Keith Richards suffered a head injury when he fell out of a tree while vacationing in Fiji. His injury forced the Stones to postpone the start of the European leg of their “A Bigger Bang” world tour.

Last week, Jagger, 63, said during an interview with a British radio station that he has hired a voice coach for the first time to help him preserve his voice.
