Rolling Stones fans will not get what they want -- at least not when planned -- due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The legendary British rock group has postponed its upcoming No Filter Tour of North America, including a June 10 show at Detroit's Ford Field. Promoters advise fans to hang onto their tickets and "await further information" about new dates.

In a statement the Stones said, "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 tour was slated to start May 8 in San Diego and play a total of 15 shows before finishing July 9 in Atlanta. The Ford Field show was to be its first Detroit appearance in 15 years -- since Aug. 31, 2005 at Comerica Park.

The moves is the first coronavirus-related postponement in what is a busy concert summer in general and a particularly busy stadium season. Also on the books are Billy Joel and Guns N' Roses, June 10 and 11 respectively at Comerica Park, as well as Kenny Chesney on Aug. 15 at Ford Field, the Hella Mega Tour with Green Day, Weezer and Fall Out Boy on Aug. 19 at Comerica and Def Leppard, Motley Crue and others the following day, also at Comerica.

Those concerts are still on for the time being.
