The Rolling Stones have postponed a show in the US so that singer Sir Mick Jagger can rest his voice.

A rare club date at New York's Beacon Theatre scheduled for Tuesday has been delayed by a day on doctor's orders.

A concert at New Jersey's Boardwalk Hall on Friday, cancelled hours before it was due to begin, is now set to take place on 17 November.

The postponements follow disruption to live dates in Spain in August when Sir Mick, 63, suffered laryngitis.

The Stones played the Beacon Theatre on Sunday as part of former President Bill Clinton's 60th birthday celebrations.

Hawaii finale

The postponement of the New Jersey show means the Stones may be forced to reschedule a concert at Los Angeles' Dodger Stadium on 18 November.

The band are currently halfway through the second leg of their Bigger Bang world tour, which started in Boston in August 2005.

The tour is expected to culminate with a show in Hawaii on 22 November.

The tour included a show in Shanghai, where songs including Brown Sugar and Let's Spend the Night Together were deleted from the set due to Chinese officials' concerns over lyrical content.

It also included a free show for more than a million people at Rio de Janeiro's Copacabana Beach.

Meanwhile, a portrait of Stones guitarist Keith Richards, which was the inspiration for Johnny Depp's performance in the Pirates of the Caribbean films, has gone on display for the first time.

The oil on canvas artwork shows Richards as a pirate and was painted by bandmate Ronnie Wood's brother-in-law Paul Karslake.

It is on show at London's Artisan Gallery as part of Karslake's new exhibition until 30 November.
