The Rolling Stones are postponing the No Filter Tour because of the coronavirus pandemic, tour promoter AEG said on Tuesday.

The tour, which was originally expected to kick off in San Diego, Calif., on May 8, was set to stop in 15 cities.

“We’re hugely disappointed to have to postpone the tour. We are sorry to all 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 Stones said in a statement.
