Mick Jagger to Undergo Heart Valve Surgery

Mick Jagger, front man of The Rolling Stones, will will undergo surgery to replace a valve in his heart this week. Doctors at the New York hospital performing the surgery expect Jagger to make a full recovery.

Over the weekend, The Rolling Stones issued a statement postponing the North American leg of the No Filter Tour, scheduled to begin in Miami on April 20th.

“Mick has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time, as he needs medical treatment,” read a statement from the band. “We apologize for any inconvenience this causes those who have tickets to shows but wish to reassure fans to hold onto these existing tickets, as they will be valid for the rescheduled dates, which will be announced shortly.”

Jagger, 75, took to Twitter to apologize to supporters following the weekend announcement.

“I really hate letting you down like this,” he wrote. “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.”
