Re-Start Me Up: Rolling Stones Reschedule Canceled Show

The May 18 date at Levi's Stadium has been rescheduled for Aug. 18, and the band and venue will honor all existing tickets.

If you want to move like Jagger, you have to maintain your health — even if you are Jagger.

The Rolling Stones were initially supposed to play at Levi’s Stadium tomorrow night, but Mick Jagger had to cancel because he wound up needing heart surgery. (Also the tongue that sticks out of the mouth of their logo suddenly fell to one side and was starting to look a little whitish.)

The famously energetic Jagger, who turns 76 on July 26, has since been restored to top-notch condition, even dancing to The Wombats’ “Techno Fan” only yesterday. Consequently, the band has rescheduled its entire No Filter tour with dates in the U.S. and Canada all summer.

The May 18 show is now scheduled for Aug. 18, which is a Sunday night instead of a Friday, but still an excellent opportunity to see the world’s pre-eminent rock ‘n’ roll band, one week after legacy headliner Paul Simon comes out of semi-retirement to play Outside Lands.

Anybody remember the Simpsons episode that looks to Lisa’s future as a college student, and she has a “Rolling Stones Wheelchair Tour 2010 poster on her wall? They sure proved that little ageist burn wrong, now didn’t they?

The Rolling Stones, Sunday, Aug. 18, at Levi’s Stadium, tickets.
