If you were planning a road trip to Miami or Jacksonville in April to see the Rolling Stones, bad news.

The legendary rock icons have postponed their spring North American tour due to medical issues on the part of frontman Mick Jagger. That includes stadium dates in Miami on April 20 and Jacksonville on April 24.

"Mick has been advised that he cannot go on tour at this time, as he needs medical treatment," the band said in a statement. "The doctors have advised Mick that he is expected to make a full recovery so he can get back on stage as soon as possible."

In a statement of his own, Jagger said he was "devastated" by the decision.

"I'm so sorry to all our fans in America and Canada with tickets, I really hate letting you down like this," Jagger wrote. "I'm devastated for having to postpone the tour but I will be working very hard to be back on the road as soon as I can. Once again, huge apologies to everyone."

The band stated that all tickets purchased will be valid for the new dates, "which will be announced shortly."
