Apr 5, 2019  •  Post A Comment

Rolling Stones lead singer Mick Jagger has completed a heart valve procedure and is doing well, Billboard reports.

The report quotes an official statement from reps for Jagger that says: “Mick Jagger has successfully undergone treatment. He is doing very well and is expected to make a full recovery.”

Billboard adds: “Doctors were able to access Jagger’s heart valve through his femoral artery and are now monitoring the Rolling Stones frontman for any complications that could arise from the procedure, including excess bleeding. On Sunday (March 31) the Stones announced they were rescheduling their North American No Filter Tour so that Jagger could have the procedure.”

The upcoming tour, which had been scheduled to begin this month, will now begin in July. Dates will be announced in the coming weeks.

“Jagger will need to rest after completing the transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), sources say. The minimally invasive procedure allows Jagger to avoid major surgery — doctors are able to repair the heart valve using a a catheter that accesses a major artery without opening the chest,” Billboard reports.

Jagger may be up and moving as soon as a few days from now, but will need additional time before he’s ready to return to the stage, the report notes.
