The Rolling Stones recently announced an upcoming North American tour, but it has reportedly been postponed due to frontman Mick Jagger having to undergo heart surgery to replace a valve. Thankfully, the 75-year old is expected to make a full recovery but needs to take it easy for a while.
The band’s “No Filter” tour was scheduled to take place from April 20th to July 29th. The lead singer himself took to social media to apologize for having to indefinitely postpone the tour and said that he was “devastated” about it.
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.

“I’m so sorry to all our fans in America & Canada with tickets. I really hate letting you down like this,” the statement on Twitter read, “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.”
The singer was recently spotted on a beach in Miami with his family, appearing to be in good health despite the disappointing news. We hope he is relaxing and resting!
Speculation began on Jagger’s health when the band announced they needed to postpone the tour because the frontman needed “medical treatment.” The statement was so vague that people began to wonder what was going on with his health.
Rolling Stones bandmate Ronnie Wood took to Twitter to thank everyone for their kind and supportive messages to Jagger at the time.
We’ll miss you over the next few weeks, but we’re looking forward to seeing you all again very soon. Here’s to Mick 💪 ~ thanks for your supportive messages it means so much to us 🎸🎶🎤 🎸🎶 @RollingStones

Keith Richards, long-time guitarist of The Rolling Stones and bandmate of Jagger’s since 1962, also posted on Twitter thanking fans for their support.
A big disappointment for everyone but things need to be taken care of and we will see you soon. Mick, we are always there for you!

Many fans also reached out to Jagger directly on Twitter. One fan said, “We love you so much, Mick. You need to have a good rest. Nothing is more important than your health. I’m looking forward to seeing you again someday. Don’t worry about us and take good care of yourself. Sending you big hugs and kisses!! Keep on rocking, the greatest R&R band!!”
Another fan said, “Here’s to a speedy recovery! There’s no other frontman in the world like you. Best Wishes.”
There is no clue as to when the tour will be rescheduled to but we are all hoping for a quick recovery! We can’t wait to see the Stones back on tour again.
