Rolling Stones front man Mick Jagger will undergo heart surgery to replace a valve.
The news follows the bands announcement over the weekend that they would be postponing their upcoming North American tour due to the singer’s unspecified medical issues. Reports surfaced earlier in the day that Jagger will have the procedure to replace a valve on Friday. Rolling Stone Magazine confirmed that the 75-year-old singer will have surgery for the heart issue.
The band was scheduled to launch its No Filter Tour on April 20 and continue through July 29. The entire run has been postponed so Jagger can recover. Jagger’s band mates took to Twitter to wish their leader a speedy recovery. There were no dates on the tour scheduled here in Minnesota. Get well soon Mick!
