One of the greatest Rock ’n ’Roll bands in the history of music is once again going on
tour. The Stones have been around since the 1960s and have toured and played the largest possible venues in the world. In the past year, they have announced their No Filter Tour 2019 with elaborate marketing with random pop-up posts around the continent with the famed Rolling Stones Logo with a date. The Rolling Stones have made casual stops in Toronto and Québec. But in light of current events this may be one of the last tours ever from the legendary band.
The current #NoFilter Tour 2019 has been postponed to the deteriorating health of front
man Mick Jagger. It’s no surprise that with the age of the group there are some things that are unavoidable. This year, he will be turning 76 and has been touring for years on end as well as recording their most recent album Blue & Lonesome in 2016, which was their first album in 11 years.
On April 1st , 2019, it was released that the tour would be postponed due to Mick
Jagger’s valve replacement surgery. He made a statement that he is sincerely sorry about postponing the North American Leg of the tour and he will work at recovering as fast as possible. The Canadian show date was set to take place at Burl’s Creek on June 29th which is the home to Boots and Hearts Country Music Festival and former event grounds for "WayHome Music Festival". This would have been one of the largest single shows to take place on the grounds with Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Famers as well as it being Canada Day Weekend.
After the news was out, band members Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood took to Twitter
to apologize to their fans and ensure them that the current tickets purchased will still be valid for the rescheduled dates.
