"For the second time in three days, the Rolling Stones have postponed a concert so that singer
Mick Jagger can rest his voice, the band's spokeswoman said on Monday.
A rare club appearance scheduled for Tuesday at New York's Beacon Theater has been delayed by a day on the advice of 63-year-old Jagger's doctor, according to a statement.
The Stones also played the Beacon on Sunday as part of former President
Bill Clinton's 60th birthday celebration. Director
Martin Scorsese is taping both shows for a DVD.
Friday's arena show in Atlantic City, New Jersey, was postponed just hours before show time when many fans had already descended on the resort city from around the country. Jagger also left Spanish fans in the lurch in August when the band canceled two shows due to his case of laryngitis.
The Stones now will play Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall on November 17, which is expected to result in the postponement of their November 18 date at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. The band has not played shows on consecutive nights in some years.
The Stones are midway through the second North American leg of their "Bigger Bang" world tour, which began in Boston in August 2005. After Los Angeles, they are scheduled to end the trek in Hawaii on November 22, although there is unconfirmed speculation that that show will be canceled. A Stones spokesman said he expected further announcements about the itinerary to be made in coming days.
Ticket sales in stops such as Chicago, Seattle and Los Angeles have been sluggish and sales of the band's current album "A Bigger Bang" also were disappointing. "
