A sick Mick Jagger has forced The Rolling Stones to cancel the next gig on their Australian tour.
The 71-year-old frontman has developed a throat infection and is under strict doctor's orders to rest his vocal chords for the next few days.
This means their scheduled gig at Hanging Rock near Melbourne on Saturday, November 8 has been cancelled. Their upcoming Auckland show is unaffected.
"The Rolling Stones are incredibly disappointed to cancel the Hanging Rock gig and to disappoint their fans but were left with no other option," a spokesman for the band said in a statement issued by the Mushroom Group.
The next concert scheduled on the 14 On Fire tour is Sydney on Wednesday, November 12.
All fans who purchased tickets to the Hanging Rock concert will be refunded.
The Rolling Stones performed in Melbourne on Wednesday night. They kicked off their tour at the revamped Adelaide Oval in front of 53,000 fans on October 25.
In March, The Rolling Stones were forced to reschedule their Australian tour following the sudden death of Jagger's partner L'Wren Scott.
They're scheduled to perform in Auckland on November 22.
