Stones Scrap Homecoming Show

Jagger's flu bumps back first London gig

By

The Rolling Stones canceled their third concert in two weeks as frontman Mick Jagger continues to suffer from health problems. The sixty-year-old singer has the flu and won't be able to play Saturday's stadium gig scheduled for London's Twickenham -- which was to have been the Stones' first U.K. stop on their Forty Licks world tour.

"The doctors tell me that I must have two more days rest," Jagger said in a statement. "After that I will be completely recovered."

A second date at Twickenham is scheduled to go on as planned Sunday. Saturday's concert has been rescheduled for September 20th.

The Stones canceled a concert in Amsterdam last week after Jagger came down with laryngitis, and missed a date in Spain Wednesday night because he had a sore throat. The Forty Licks tour kicked off in Boston nearly a year ago.
