Legendary British rock band The Rolling Stones won’t be visiting Vancouver and, to quote Mick Jagger, it’s a Bitch.
While wild horses wouldn’t be enough to drag the Stones away from Vancouver, a global pandemic is a different story. The Stones' 15-date No Filter summer tour was due to kick off in San Diego in May last year but it was postponed in March 2020.
The band recently announced the tour had been rescheduled with new dates for this fall. In the rescheduling though, the Stones' performance at BC Place -- the only Canadian stop in the tour -- was removed.
“We want to thank you all for your patience during this very difficult and unprecedented time,” the band stated on their website. “Unfortunately, there are a few dates that we were unable to reschedule.”
The changes also included the addition of several U.S. performances in New Orleans, Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
All previously purchased tickets will be honoured at the rescheduled dates the band’s website reads adding that Ticketmaster will communicate with purchasers with more information. Where feasible, a priority offer for ticketholders will be available for nearby shows.
The Rolling Stones aren't the only ones to leave Vancouver music fans in the lurch; recently British pop sensation Harry Styles pulled his rescheduled Rogers Arena show from his re-launched tour - breaking many young hearts in the process.
