Mick Jagger Is A-Ok After Heart Surgery

Close

Long live rock n' roll!

Mick Jagger is doin' fine, folks. The Rolling Stones frontman has reportedly undergone a heart valve replacement surgery called TAVR at a NY hospital, and his rep says that he's on his way to a full recovery.

Fran Curtis, the spokesperson for the band, says, "Mick Jagger has successfully undergone treatment. He is doing very well and is expected to make a full recovery."

On the other hand, the 75-year-old only has words of gratitude to tweet to his fans, "Thank you everyone for all your messages of support, I'm feeling much better now and on the mend - and also a huge thank you to all the hospital staff for doing a superb job."

It was previously announced that the Rolling Stones' upcoming tour was postponed to make way for Jagger's "medical treatment."

"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," the official statement reads.

Apologetic, Jagger appeased fans on Instagram, "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."

No concert, but more releases

While waiting for the tour to be greenlit, fans still have their hands full as a new greatest hits collection hits shelves this April 19. The track list boasts several of their classic cuts, selections from their 2016 release Blue & Lonesome, and live recordings of their recent stadium outings -- featuring Ed Sheeran, Brad Paisley, and Florence Welch.

A concert film, "Bridges to Bremen," focusing on the leg of their Bridges to Babylon Tour in Bremen, Germany on September 2, 1998, makes its way to physical and online stores this June, while a new album is (still) being recorded.

All in a 'Mick' of time.
