Mick Jagger’s recent heart surgery was successful, with the lead singer of the Rolling Stones tweeting on Friday that he’s “on the mend,” and “feeling much better now.”
“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,” Jagger’s tweet read.
“Mick Jagger has successfully undergone treatment. He is doing very well and is expected to make a full recovery,” a rep for the band said in a statement as well.
Last Saturday, the Rolling Stones postponed their upcoming North American tour over Jagger’s previously undisclosed health issue. It was later reported that Jagger needed surgery to replace a valve in his heart.
The postponed dates have yet to be rescheduled. The Stones were set to open the latest leg of their No Filter tour on April 20 in Miami.
“I’m sorry to our fans in America and Canada. I really hate letting our fans down and I’m hugely disappointed to have to postpone the tour but am looking forward to getting back on stage as soon as I can,” Jagger said in a statement on Instagram at the time. “Once again, huge apologies to everyone.”
The Rolling Stones last performed in the U.S. in 2016, with shows at the Desert Trip Festival in Indio, California, and Las Vegas. The band’s last full-scale tour in North America’s was 2015’s Zip Code tour.
The Rolling Stones are releasing a new greatest-hits compilation titled “Honk” on April 19.
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.
