(NOLA.com/Times-Picayune)- You can’t always get what you want, New Orleans.

The Rolling Stones’ much-touted appearance at the 2019 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival has been canceled, Jazz Fest said Saturday (March 30) amid reports that frontman Mick Jagger is ailing. The band scrubbed the entire North American leg of its No Filter tour.

Jagger “has been advised by doctors he cannot go on tour at this time as he needs medical treatment,” the band said in a tweet. The doctors expect Mick to make a complete recovery so that he can get back on stage as soon as possible.”

The Stones were one of the few acts big enough to befit the 50th anniversary of Jazz Fest.
