OverviewEdit

The No Filter Tour was announced on 9 May 2017, with fourteen shows in twelve different venues across Europe in September and October of the same year.[4] On 26 February 2018, fourteen new dates were added throughout Europe and the UK.[5][6] With an overall attendance of 1,506,259 fans grossing $237.8 million,[1][2] the tour was one of the most commercially successful concert tours of 2017 and 2018. The North American leg of the tour was officially announced on 19 November 2018 and was set to play 17 shows across the US and one in Canada, beginning on 20 April 2019 in Miami, Florida.

On 30 March 2019, it was announced that Mick Jagger would be receiving treatment for an unspecified medical condition (later revealed as surgery to replace a valve in his heart), forcing The Rolling Stones to postpone the 17-date North American leg of the tour.[7] The procedure took place on 5 April 2019 in New York, with Jagger expected to make a full recovery and return to touring in summer 2019.[8] On 2 April 2019, it was also announced that (although the main shows of the tour would all be rescheduled) the band's headline performance at the New Orleans Jazz Festival had been cancelled, with organisers seeking a replacement.[9] Fleetwood Mac were initially announced as the replacement for the Rolling Stones, but they too had to pull out of the festival because Stevie Nicks had contracted the flu, and both bands were ultimately replaced in the lineup by Widespread Panic.[10]

On 4 April 2019, it was announced that Jagger had completed his heart valve procedure in New York, was recovering (in hospital) after a successful operation on his heart, was in great health, was getting some rest and could be released in the following few days.[11][12] On 16 May, the Rolling Stones announced that No Filter Tour would resume on 21 June with the 17 postponed dates rescheduled up to the end of August.[13]
