Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Mick Jagger, lead singer of The Rolling Stones, is scheduled to undergo a heart surgery this week.
A close insider told CNN that the 75-year-old singer is said to undergo surgery to replace a valve in his heart.
The procedure will take place in New York on Friday.
Three days prior to the report, The Rolling Stones postponed the North America leg of their tour, which was supposed to begin on April 20 in Miami Gardens, Florida.
In a statement, the band said that Jagger has been advised by doctors not to go on tour as he requires medical treatment. Fans who bought tickets were assured that these are still valid for the rescheduled dates, which will be announced shortly.
Meanwhile, Jagger took to Twitter to apologize to fans for the postponement, saying he will be “working very hard to be back on stage” as soon as he can.
Jagger’s bandmates, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood, also expressed their support for the singer on social media.
“A big disappointment for everyone but things need to be taken care of and we will see you soon,” Richards posted on Twitter. “Mick, we are always there for you!”
A heart valve surgery is treatment for heart valve disease, which is a condition in which at least one of the four valves that keeps blood circulation flow properly isn’t functioning. Each valve opens and closes during every heartbeat. If the valves don’t function correctly it disrupts the blood flow throughout the entire body as it restricts the blood that is being pumped out of the heart.
If not treated people with heart valve disease will experiences periods where they will lose consciousness.
