The former Rolling Stones guitarist announced today via his official website, “Due to unforeseen circumstances the planned shows in Reeth, Kinross and the Australian tour have been postponed. We will update you when there is any further information”.

Noise11 understands Mick’s ill-health is responsible for the delayed dates.

Mick Taylor joined the Rolling Stones following the death of founding guitarist Brian Jones.

Mick first played on ‘Country Honk’ and ‘Live With Me’ on ‘Let It Bleed’ as well as the ‘Honky Tonk Women’ single. He then played on the live album ‘Get Yer Ya Ya’s Out’, then the studio albums ‘Sticky Fingers’, ‘Exile On Main Street’, ‘Goats Head Soup’ and ‘It’s Only Rock N Roll’ before departing to be replaced by Ron Wood.

In 1981, leftover sessions from ‘Goats Head Soup’ were used on ‘Tattoo You’. It is Mick you hear on ‘Waiting On A Friend’ and ‘Tops’.

Taylor has also recorded with Bob Dylan for ‘Infidels’ (1983) and ‘Empire Burlesque’ (1985).
