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.
