Share on

The Rolling Stones‘ North American tour will likely resume in July after the band postponed 17 tour dates.

The postponement comes after news broke that Mick Jagger, 75, will undergo heart surgery later this week.

Rolling Stone confirmed rumours that Jagger would need surgery to replace a heart valve.

He’s expected to make a full recovery with make-up dates to be scheduled later in the year.

“We’re beginning to look at the rescheduling options and we’re going to try and do this as quickly as we can,” said John Meglen to Billboard, of the Stones’ promoters Concerts West.

“Everyone’s health and happiness comes first,” he added. Meglen also said new dates could be announced in the next couple of weeks.

Another source ‘close to the band’ tells Billboard the tour should reschedule in July.

Keith Richards also took to social media to apologize to disappointed fans:

In other Rolling Stones news, the band is readying the release of a career-spanning compilation, HONK, out April 19.
