Mick Jagger will undergo heart surgery

Mick Jagger will undergo heart surgery”

Rolling Stones fans around the world got a fright Monday after reports that their idol Mick Jagger was to have heart surgery later this week.

The iconic British band put back the North American leg of their "No Filter" tour Saturday saying the 75-year-old rocker was to receive unspecified medical treatment. The band added that Jagger "is expected to make a complete recovery so that he can get back on stage as soon as possible".

The Start Me Up group announced the disappointing news via Twitter on Saturday, and it has been reported by US website Drudge Report, the 75-year-old rocker is set to undergo heart valve replacement surgery in NY this week.

Meglen claimed the tour would have to be re-booked for no later than July, as it will play mostly National Football League stadiums, which are generally not busy during summer months and can be booked up until the first week of the 2019-2020 season, which begins in early September. Other stops included Jacksonville, Florida; Houston; the New Orleans Jazz Festival; Pasadena and Santa Clara in California; Seattle; Denver; Washington, D.C.; Philadelphia; Foxborough, Massachusetts; East Rutherford, New Jersey; Chicago; and Ontario, Canada.

Jagger himself tweeted: "I'm so sorry to all our fans in America & Canada with tickets".

Taking to Twitter, the Jumping Jack Flash rockers wrote: "Unfortunately today the Rolling Stones have had to announce the postponement of their upcoming US/Canada tour dates - we apologise for any inconvenience this causes those who have tickets for shows".

The band are working with promoters to reschedule the shows, amid reports that Jagger will have heart surgery later this week.

"Once again, huge apologies to everyone".

A source also told The Sun that: "Mick will be undergoing a non-invasive heart valve procedure". Many hope that the New Orleans concert can be rescheduled for a later date, perhaps at a later location. "But if what we are reading now is true, that is quite reassuring, because heart valve surgery is now rather commonplace".

"We are deeply committed to our community, fans, attendees and partners and look forward to welcoming Mick and The Rolling Stones to Burl's Creek as soon as he has recovered", said the emailed statement.
