Resting: Sir Mick Jagger

A Rolling Stones concert in Las Vegas has been cancelled after Sir Mick Jagger was diagnosed with laryngitis.

The 73-year-old frontman has been advised to rest his voice following two shows at Desert Trip festival in Indio, California, earlier this month.

It is not yet known if he will be better in time to perform at the next Las Vegas show, scheduled for Saturday.

The band will release their first studio album in more than a decade, Blue & Lonesome, on December 2. It was recorded at British Grove Studios in London late last year, near Richmond, and the tiny Eel Pie Island where the Stones started out, playing the blues in pubs and clubs.
