NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) — Billboard is reporting that Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger has successfully undergone a procedure to treat an ailing aortic valve and is on the mend.
Sources told Billboard that doctors were successfully able to treat Jagger’s heart valve with a stent inserted through his femoral artery and are now monitoring Jagger for complications.
The procedure will leave Jagger laid up for up to a week while he recovers but is substantially less impactful than open heart surgery, which can take months to recover from.
The Stones were set to begin the North American leg of their No Filter tour later this month but announced earlier this week that they were postponing the run while Jagger received medical treatment.
All dates on the tour are expected to be rescheduled with the exception of the Stones performance at this year’s Jazz Fest, which will not take place.
