Mick Jagger Recovering After Heart Surgery: Report


Mick Jagger underwent a heart valve procedure in New York, and is now recovering and in great health, according to a new report. 

The iconic 75-year-old Rolling Stones frontman is currently being monitored by doctors for any complications, sources told Billboard. 

Jagger will need rest after the transcatheter aortic valve replacement, a minimally invasive procedure, and could be up and moving in several days, according to the report. He will also need additional time to recover before going back to performing. 

The band had earlier released a statement saying they were postponing their upcoming "No Filter" US tour, which was scheduled to start later this month: "Mick Jagger has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time as he needs medical treatment...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.”

Jagger had also previously tweeted, "I’m so sorry to all our fans in America & Canada with tickets."

"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."

Reps for Jagger did not return Billboard's request for comment.
