The legendary rockers will now take the stage Monday, the band announced Friday. Tickets for the original date will be honored.

"We're going to be caught in a crossfire hurricane but we're staying to play the show on Monday night, so stay safe and see you all then," frontman Mick Jagger said on social media.

The Stones had to cancel a May 2 performance at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival and postponed its No Filter tour earlier this year as Jagger underwent heart surgery.

The Superdome performance Monday will be the first time the band has performed in New Orleans since 1994, The Times-Picayune reported.
