Mick Jagger's first solo tour has been postponed. The tour had been tentatively scheduled to begin in Europe and reach the United States by October, although specific dates were never announced. Sources insist that the delay is mainly due to Jagger's wanting more rehearsal time with his band. But another reason could be the last-minute departure of guitarist Jeff Beck, who is featured on Jagger's new album, Primitive Cool.

At press time, Jagger was in London promoting the album and planning additional rehearsals with the rest of the band, which includes guitarist G.E. Smith, keyboardist Phil Ashley, bassist Doug Wimbish and drummer Simon Phillips.
