Mick Jagger set to undergo heart valve replacement: report

Mick Jagger will undergo heart valve replacement surgery this week, according to The Drudge Report.

Jagger, 75, will reportedly have the operation in New York and is expected to make a full recovery.

The news emerged Monday, just days after it was announced that The Rolling Stones put their upcoming tour in the United States and Canada on hold while the frontman received medical treatment.

“Mick Jagger has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time as he needs medical treatment,” a statement to the group’s Twitter account read Saturday. “The doctors have advised Mick that he is expected to make a complete recovery so that he can get back on stage as soon as possible."

The band did not specify what medical treatment Jagger needed.

Jagger also wrote a note to his fans, apologizing for the tour change.

“I really hate letting you down like this,” he said in a tweet. “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. Once again, huge apologies to everyone.”

A rep for the rocker did not immediately respond to the Daily News for comment.

Other stops included Jacksonville, Florida; Houston; the New Orleans Jazz Festival; Pasadena and Santa Clara in California; Seattle; Denver; Washington, D.C.; Philadelphia; Foxborough, Massachusetts; Chicago; and Ontario, Canada.

Rescheduled tour dates will be announced “shortly” and tickets for the postponed shows will be valid at the replacement concerts.
