Mick Jagger undergoes successful heart surgery

The Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger has successfully undergone heart surgery and is now recovering in a hospital in New York City.

Jagger, 75, required a heart valve replacement surgery and will remain in the hospital under observation for four to five days.

The news was announced last week after it emerged that The Rolling Stones had been forced to cancel their planned tour dates. Taking to social media, Jagger said: “I’m so sorry to all our fans in America and Canada with tickets,” after the tour was put on hold.

“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,” he added.

“Once again, huge apologies to everyone.”
