The Rolling Stones frontman is reportedly recovering in the hospital after a successful heart valve replacement procedure.
The Rolling Stones' announced last week that their 'No Filter' Tour would be rescheduled to allow rock music icon Mick Jagger to undergo heart valve surgery.
The minimally invasive trans-catheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) surgery typically has a relatively short recovery time, but according to People, doctors reportedly advised Jagger to take a some extra time due to his energetic stage performances: "If it was someone else, they’d need to recover for two weeks but because Mick jumps around and the performances are strenuous, he needed to postpone the tour."
Billboard was first to report that the surgery was a success- the 75 year old singer is said to be in excellent health and is expected to be out of the hospital in just a few days. The band's No Filter Tour will be restarting in July and making up nearly all of the postponed dates, with the exception of New Orleans Jazz Fest, where their spot will be filled by Fleetwood Mac.
