According to PageSix.com, Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger is going to have a stent placed in his heart. The procedure will take place in New York City this week and the 75-year-old is expected to make a full recovery. Sources told the site Jagger is in “extraordinary physical condition.” The Stones North American “No Filter” tour, which was set to kick off in a few weeks, was postponed after Jagger was diagnosed with an undisclosed illness.
“Mick has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time, as he needs medical treatment,” the Stones said in a statement over the weekend.
A source told Page Six at the time, “This is not a serious thing” and the band was already in the process of rebooking the tour dates. Mick put out a statement saying, “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 the road as soon as I can. Once again, huge apologies to everyone.”
We wish Mick a speedy recovery and we'll let you know when they reschedule the Rolling Stones June 8th Gillette Stadium show. And Keith Richards is still going to outlive us all.
