    Madrid (Reuters): The Rolling Stones cancelled their second and final concert in Spain today because lead singer Mick Jagger was suffering from laryngitis, a local government official in El Ejido said. The band had been due to travel to the southern town from Madrid to play tomorrow after calling off their first gig in Valladolid in central Spain yesterday night. The band yesterday said in a statement that they expected to appear on Sunday, August 20, at Twickenham Stadium in London.

    Jagger, who has suffered throat problems on previous tours, said last week he had taken up voice coaching to help preserve his voice. The band will refund the 37,000 tickets sold for the Valladolid gig, part of the marathon ''A Bigger Bang'' tour which kicked off last August, since when they have played to around 4.5 million fans.
