CLEVELAND — Fans who had been waiting nearly 20 years for the Rolling Stones to have a concert in Cleveland will unfortunately have to wait a little longer.

On Tuesday, the rock legends announced that they are postponing their 15-city "No Filter" tour due to the concerns of coronavirus. 

"We're hugely disappointed to have to postpone the tour," the band wrote on social media. "We are sorry to all of the fans who were looking forward to it as much as we were, but the health and safety of everyone has to take priority. We will all get through this together - and we'll see you very soon."

The tour was to have made a stop at FirstEnergy Stadium on Friday, June 19 for what would have been the first time the band had performed in Cleveland since 2002.

Ticketholders are being advised by concert promoters to hang on to their original tickets and await further information.
