A representative for Mick Jagger said on Friday the Rolling Stones frontman has successfully undergone medical treatment and is “expected to make a full recovery.” 

The 75-year-old rocker was in hospital in New York for a heart valve replacement surgery, Rolling Stone magazine reported

Last week, the Rolling Stones announced they were postponing their latest tour so Jagger could receive treatment.

Jagger was told by doctors “he cannot go on tour at this time” and apologized to U.S. and Canadian fans last weekend for postponing the iconic rockers’ forthcoming tour.

Jagger tweeted, “I’m devastated for having to postpone the tour but I will be working very hard to be back on stage as soon as I can.”

On Friday, he posted a message of thanks on social media to medical staff for the successful outcome and to fans for the support.   

Jagger and the band have been tight-lipped about his medical condition, but music industry publications including Billboard and Rolling Stone have reported that he underwent a heart valve replacement surgery. 

The Stones’ No Filter Tour was expected to start April 20 in Miami and continue through July. 

The lone Canadian date had been set for Burl’s Creek Event Grounds in Oro-Medonte, Ont., on June 29.

Organizers have advised ticketholders to hang on to their existing tickets, which will be valid for rescheduled tour dates.

New dates “will be announced shortly,” according to promoters.
