Mick Jagger has the support of his Rolling Stones bandmates after postponing their upcoming tour in order for the 75-year-old frontman to receive medical treatment. 

The band announced the news in a statement provided to USA TODAY Saturday by representative Fran Curtis.

“Mick Jagger has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time as he needs medical treatment,” the statement read. “The doctors have advised Mick that he is expected to make a complete recovery so that he can get back on stage as soon as possible.”

No more details about Jagger’s condition were provided.

Keith Richards called the postponement a “big disappointment for everyone,” but added that “things need to be taken care of and we will see you soon.”

“Mick, we are always there for you!” Stewart tweeted Saturday. 

Ronnie Wood dedicated a tweet to Jagger and their fans Saturday, writing, “Here’s to Mick ~ thanks for your supportive messages it means so much to us.” 

Wood continued: “We’ll miss you over the next few weeks, but we’re looking forward to seeing you all again very soon.”

Jagger took to social media to apologize to his fans for the news.

“I’m sorry to all our fans in America & Canada with tickets. I really hate letting you down like this,” he wrote. “I’m devastated for having to postpone the tour but I will be working very hard to be back on stage as soon as I can. Once again, huge apologies to everyone.”
