Mick Jagger is set to undergo heart valve surgery after The Rolling Stones had to cancel shows recently following their leading man’s poor health. The band postponed US tour dates over the weekend.
The news was shared via the New York Post’s Page Six column which reported that Jagger will receive a stent in his heart to rectify a damaged valve. The surgery is said to have an exceptionally high success rate and is likely a precaution.
Apologising directly to fans via Twitter, Jagger wrote: “I’m so sorry to all our fans in America & Canada with tickets. I really hate letting you down like this. 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. Once again, huge apologies to everyone.”
Currently, there are no set plans on when the gigs may be played.
