Rolling Stones cancel Hawaii show

The Rolling Stones' tour began 12 months ago in Boston
The Rolling Stones have postponed more shows and called off the final date of their world tour as Sir Mick Jagger rests his voice.

The singer, 63, has been advised to take four days off to help him recover from recent throat problems.

As a result, five US concerts have been rescheduled and the tour's finale in Honolulu, Hawaii has been scrapped.

One fan is suing the Stones for $51m (26.7m) for cancelling New Jersey gig with four hours notice last week.

Rosalie Druyan, from Brooklyn, is accusing the band of fraud and acting in bad faith because of the cancellation, which she said cost her and thousands of fans money on non-refundable hotel bookings.

In papers filed at Manhattan Supreme Court, she alleges that Sir Mick sought medical attention before the concert and knew he would not perform, but did not disclose that in time for ticket-holders to cancel travel reservations.

Rescheduled dates

The New Jersey concert has now been rescheduled for 17 November, which has in turn pushed back a concert in Los Angeles to 22 November.

A gig scheduled for Vancouver, Canada, this Friday will now take place on 25 November, and a date in Oakland, California moves forward one day to 6 November.

A rare club performance which was due to take place in New York on Tuesday will go ahead on Wednesday, and is due to be filmed for a DVD by director Martin Scorsese.

Concerts in Phoenix, Las Vegas, Boise and Atlantic City are unaffected.

Sir Mick Jagger
The band earned more than any other live act in the first half of 2006

The Stones' Bigger Bang world tour started in Boston in August 2005, and has visited 16 countries.

But the tour has been dogged by delays and cancellations due to Sir Mick's throat condition and guitarist Keith Richards' fall from a tree while on holiday in Fiji.

Nonetheless, the veteran rockers made more touring in the first half of 2006 than any other band.

According to Billboard magazine, they took $147.3m (79.7m) from 45 concerts, beating acts such as U2 and Bon Jovi.
