For some reason, I don't know if Jerry Hall is the most reliable source of information. She's been in e-mail contact with Richards family (Patti?) and now seems to act like a spokesman. And Mick is in holiday according to her and don't know more about keith than anyone else? Thanks Jerry for "sharing" your information. And now shut the @#$%& up.

a bit unfair Doxa. She was probably asked for a quote as opposed to thinking of herself as a spokesperson. If shes in touch with Patti then by definition she would have better access to whats going on than almost anyone. Plus her quote clears up why Mick himself hasnt said anything or felt the need to rush down under.

Gazza, shame on you - mentioning Jerry and thinking in the same sentence.

In other news, Keith to expand his set to 3 songs to include his "unique" vocals on "Monkey Man". Jagger said he and Matt Clifford would sing "Before They Make Me Run" as payback.

Gazza, you might be right (and more than that I hope SHE is right). The whole situation is a bit alarming and all this mis- or dis-information is making me nervous. But according to Jerry's statement, at laest there is one person out there who is not worried: Mick Jagger does not let bad news like this to disturb his holidays...

I see what you mean, but I think that if something as serious, as if Keef couldn't go on, happened, they would kindda make sure that the guy playing the guitar wasn't introduced as the next Keith.

I had no idea some airlines would give refunds or free changes when concert plans change, but apparently sometimes they do. Has anyone checked into this with their airline for the upcoming shows in Europe?


Airlines anger Osmond fans
11 May 2006
[www.stuff.co.nz]

Disappointed Donny Osmond concert-goers are angry they are not getting the same treatment from airlines as U2 fans, after Osmond's two New Zealand concerts were postponed.

Osmond had concerts planned for Auckland last night and Wellington tonight, but postponed the dates two weeks ago to late July because of a family illness.

Two Auckland U2 concerts planned for March 17 and 18, which both sold out in a matter of hours, have been postponed indefinitely, also because of family illness.

Qantas and Air New Zealand allowed U2 fans to either refund or exchange their flight tickets when the new concert plans were announced, but Osmond fans are not getting the same deal.

Sharon Park, 43, of Christchurch, who has been an Osmond fan since she was young, is angry she had to pay to change her flights for the new concert dates.

Park bought tickets in March for the Wellington concert and has had to pay $80 to change her flights for the new July 31 date.

She said airlines had set a precedent with the U2 concert.

A spokeswoman for Air New Zealand said there would be no compensation for Osmond concert goers. She said there were several reasons U2 fans had been given special privileges and part of that was the number of people it affected.

A spokesman for Qantas said it would not be compensating fans for ticket cancellations or changes.

Ministry of Consumer Affairs adviser in consumer issues Joanne Kearney said postponing a concert for personal reasons was not a breach of the Consumer Guarantees Act and there was nothing fans could do.

Can someone please translate the following?

"ServiCaixa te informa que el concierto de los Rolling Stones que tenía previsto celebrarse el 29 de mayo en el Estadio Vicente Calderón de Madrid, ha sido aplazado hasta mediados del mes de junio.

Según ha informado el promotor de los conciertos en España, el aplazamiento se debe al accidente y posterior intervención quirúrgica sufrida por el guitarrista Keith Richards, cuya recuperación va a provocar un retraso en el inicio de la gira europea de la banda que debía empezar en Barcelona. Próximamente se informará de las nuevas fechas para dichos conciertos.

Las entradas que hayas adquirido para este concierto serán válidas para la nueva fecha. Por lo tanto, hasta que el promotor informe, en breve, del nuevo concierto, se recomienda conservar las entradas adquiridas.

Las circunstancias de este aplazamiento son totalmente ajenas a ServiCaixa."

Thanks in advance!

It says that the Madrid Concert will be placed in the middle of June, because of Keith's accident. You should keep your tickets (you haven't got them anyway yet).
It is the same text that also was published for Barcelona.

Btw, are you going to Barcelona anyway Erik?

I speak Italian and my Spanish is a little weak, but here's my best shot:

The concert scheduled for 5/29 in Madrid was moved to the second half of June due to the the injury sustained by Keith. We will keep you informed on the exact date. The tickets will still be valid for the new date; in the meantime, we advise that you hold on to the tickets you purchased. The reasons for the postponement have nothing to do with ServiCaixa.

Or something like that. No news here.

Thanks for the translation. I don't think I will go. Did the text say anything about a possible refund if you can't make it to a rescheduled date?

Naturally, but I was looking for info about what/when/how.
ServiCaixa probably don't even know themselves yet, how to arrange that.

If I look at it, they might exchange the Brno and Warsaw date for Mardid and Barcelona (16th and 18th) as those are field shows and continue with Vienna on the 20th. Unfortunately, I won't be really able to go to Barcelona then :|

thats my personal hunch as well, Lorenz

Then the tour to progress as originally planned with Brussels and Paris #1 taking place on June 28 and 30 respectively.

That would leave Bergen, Horsens, Gothenburg, St Petersburg, Warsaw and Brno (6 shows) to be slotted into any of the following 5 'windows'

July 7 or 8 (ie, between Zagreb and Nuremburg)

room for 2 shows between Cologne (23/7) and Amsterdam (30/7)

August 10 (between Nice and Porto)

August 18 (between Almeria and London)

the fact that it would probably be logistically easier to have the 3 Scandinavian shows and/or the 3 eastern European shows together might mean a few other shows being rearranged to suit this, plus the tour also being extended slightly into early September as no doubt at some point the Stones would need a few days off.

A bit of a mess to rearrange to be honest, so it may take a week or two (presuming the signs continue to be good for Keith and not many shows get pulled) before the picture becomes clearer for everyone.

Disclaimer : Obviously, I've no idea how many shows are going to be affected and what any rescheduled dates would be for them, but I'm just using that synopsis as an example of how problematic it is to rearrange a tour schedule - and it gets more problematic the more shows get postponed

Gazza. I read what you wrote; and I go over to rs.com:s messageboard.
Like most of us, I cruise from despair to hope and reverse.

Yesterday I was 110% sure the Scandinavian gigs were to be postponed.
After The Sun's fabricated stories are crackin up I'm not as certain.

Do we have to count with that the shows scheduled 6-8-10 June
will be postponed? Is that the most likely at this Now?

To add a few lines to my question:
We have had various bids; recovery ca 2 weeks, a months;
and a couple of months. What is the most likely here?
