AMSTERDAM - The Rolling Stones have cancelled the second of their two concerts in the Netherlands as a result of guitarist Keith Richards' infamous palm tree accident.
Concert promoter Mojo said on Wednesday that the Stones will play the Amsterdam ArenA on 31 July, a day after the date announced.
Attempts to find a new date for the second concert to fit into the band's touring schedule failed and people with tickets for the 1 August show can get their money back from the selling agent from Thursday 22 June.
A small number of tickets can be traded in for the concert the day before as there were a few places left on Wednesday.
The schedule for the Bigger Bang Tour was turned on its head literally when guitarist Keith Richards reportedly fell out of a palm tree in Fiji at the end of April. He had an operation in New Zealand to relieve pressure on his brain the following month.
He has been given the all-clear for the tour but several concerts had to be postponed or cancelled. Meanwhile his fellow guitarist Ron Wood was admitted to a recovery centre for alcohol addiction.
The Rolling Stones management said this would not influence the tour.
