Mick Jagger, forced to cancel a Rolling Stones concert in Amsterdam because of a sore throat, promised to be “suitably recharged” when the band starts its British gigs on Saturday.

Apologizing to Dutch fans in a statement after the Amsterdam concert was postponed on doctor’s advice, he promised: “We will be back in September to do the gig and we will give you a Stones show you’ll not forget.”

“I will be suitably recharged, recovered and fit for Saturday’s kick-off of the UK dates at Twickenham stadium in our home town,” said Jagger, who turned 60 last month and celebrated with a concert for 60,000 fans in Prague.

The “Licks” world tour began in Boston last September and then worked its way across the United States, Australia and the Far East before coming to Europe in June. The Rolling Stones wrap up at London’s Wembley Stadium on September 15.
