Mick Jagger Is Reportedly Recovering From Heart Surgery

We're wishing him a healthy recovery.

Legendary Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger is recovering in a New York City hospital after undergoing a successful heart valve surgery on the morning of April 5. On March 30, the band announced that they would be postponing their latest tour, originally scheduled to kick off in Miami on April 20, due to Jagger’s health. In a tweet that day, Jagger apologized to those fans who had bought tickets and were looking forward to seeing the iconic band perform live:

“I’m so sorry to all our fans in America & Canada with tickets,” he wrote. “I really hate letting you down like this. I’m devastated for having to postpone the tour but I will be working very hard to be back on stage as soon as I can. Once again, huge apologies to everyone.”

Another tweet that same day from the official Rolling Stones Twitter account explained that the tour would be postponed in order for Jagger to receive medical treatment, but no further details were given at that time:

“Mick has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time, as he needs medical treatment,” it in part. “The doctors have advised Mick that he is expected to make a complete recovery so that he can get back on stage as soon as possible.”

After his transcatheter aortic valve replacement the morning of April 5, Jagger was reported to be doing well.

“Mick Jagger has successfully undergone treatment,” a representative for the band said in a statement. “He is doing very well and is expected to make a full recovery.”

It is expected that the postponed concert dates for the No Filter Tour will be announced in the coming weeks.

“We’re beginning to look at the rescheduling options and we’re going to try and do this as quickly as we can,” John Meglen, co-CEO of Concerts West, which is promoting the originally-scheduled April-to-June leg of the North American tour, told Billboard on April 1.”Everyone’s health and happiness comes first.”
