Mick Jagger's throat infection forces Rolling Stones to axe show

The Rolling Stones have been forced to scrap another show in Australia to allow singer Mick Jagger to recover from a throat infection.

The band pulled their Australian tour earlier this year (14) following the death of Jagger's girlfriend L'Wren Scott and now a concert at Hanging Rock in Victoria, scheduled for Saturday (08Nov14), has been axed.


A release from the band reads: "The Rolling Stones are incredibly disappointed to cancel the Hanging Rock gig and to disappoint their fans but were left with no other option."


Jagger is reportedly under "strict doctor's orders" to rest his vocal cords.


The group's next show is in Sydney on 12 November (14).
