Jagger previously apologised to fans for postponing the tour, writing that he was "devastated" and would be "working very hard to be back on stage as soon as I can".
I’m so sorry to all our fans in America & Canada with tickets. I really hate letting you down like this.— Mick Jagger (@MickJagger) March 30, 2019
