The Rolling Stones are postponing an upcoming tour in the United States and Canada.

The decision comes as their singer, Mick Jagger, gets medical treatment, the band announced Saturday.

The Stones were set to hit the road for 17 shows beginning April 20 in Miami.

They were first set to play at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey June 13, their first gig in the New York City area in seven years.

The band's statement read: "Mick Jagger has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time as he needs medical treatment. The doctors have advised Mick that he is expected to make a complete recovery so that he can get back on stage as soon as possible."

So far, there has been no explanation of what Jagger might be suffering from by the band.

However, he tweeted his disappointment at the decision.

"I really hate letting you down like this," he revealed.

"I'm devastated for having to postpone the tour but I will be working very hard to be back on stage as soon as I can. Once again, huge apologies to everyone."

The Stones said rescheduled tour dates will be announced 'shortly' and that tickets for the postponed shows will be valid at the replacement concerts.

Their last U.S. tour was in 2015.
