Stones returning to tour

Associated Press

The Rolling Stones are ready to get back on the road after postponing their North American tour because Mick Jagger needed medical treatment.

The rockers announced Thursday the No Filter tour will kick off in Chicago with two shows June 21 and 25. All the cities previously postponed are locked in and there's a new date in New Orleans.

Tickets sold for the original dates will be honored, but those who can't attend can get refunds by accessing their Ticketmaster accounts.

The group said in a statement the concerts will feature classic hits such as “Sympathy For The Devil” and “Paint It Black.”

Shakira cleared

A Spanish court has cleared Colombian singers Shakira and Carlos Vives of a plagiarism claim after rejecting a lawsuit brought against them by a Cuban-born singer and producer.

The court in Madrid issued its ruling in favor of Shakira and Vives on Thursday.

Livan Rafael Castellanos had accused Shakira and Vives of plagiarizing his 1997 song “Yo te quiero tanto” in their award-winning hit “La Bicicleta.”

“La Bicicleta” won two of the three biggest Grammy Latino awards for 2016, including song and record of the year.

The ruling can be appealed.
