Rolling Stones’ Mick Jagger to have heart surgery
The band halted their tour due to Jagger's need for treatment

Mick Jagger, the frontman of the celebrated British rock band The Rolling Stones will be undergoing surgery to replace a valve in his heart. Earlier this week, the band announced the need to delay their ongoing “No Filter” tour as Jagger required medical treatment; the delay has now been extended to postponing the North American leg of the tour.

“Mick Jagger has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time as he needs medical treatment,” said the band in a statement, “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 himself tweeted his apology for the postponement, saying he was “so sorry to all [our] fans in America & Canada with tickets. I really hate letting you down like this” and that he “will be working very hard to be back on stage as soon as I can.”

The Rolling Stones formed way back in 1962  and were scheduled to have 17 shows across the United States and Canada between April and June. Jagger has eight children, five grandchildren, and even a great-granddaughter, but continues to give elective performances well in his 70s.
