HONG KONG - The Rolling Stones have postponed two weekend shows in Hong Kong over concerns about the flu-like illness that's sickened hundreds in parts of Asia.

The band issued a statement saying the Stones didn't think it was a good idea to draw a large crowd that might add to the spread of the mysterious respiratory illness.

The mystery illness known as severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, has spread to nearly a dozen countries, killing at least 52 people - including 10 in Hong Kong.
