The Rolling Stones have postponed their upcoming North American tour due to an undisclosed illness for singer Mick Jagger, the band announced in a statement on their website Saturday morning.

The Stones were set to open the latest leg of their No Filter tour on April 20 in Miami. The previous legs include stops in Europe. The rescheduled dates haven’t been announced yet.

“Mick has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time, as he needs medical treatment. The doctors have advised Mick that he is expected to make a complete recovery so that he can get back on stage as soon as possible,” the statement on the band’s site read.

“I’m sorry to our fans in America and Canada. I really hate letting our fans down and I’m hugely disappointed to have to postpone the tour but am looking forward to getting back on stage as soon as I can,” Jagger said in a statement on Instagram. “Once again, huge apologies to everyone.”

A rep for the band didn’t immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment on Jagger’s specific condition.

The dates would have been the Stones’ first in the U.S. since 2016. The dates saw the band playing to football stadiums in cities like Denver, Seattle, Phoenix, Philadelphia, as well as playing two nights at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium and a night at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.

The Rolling Stones are releasing a new greatest hits compilation titled “Honk” on April 19.
