Reports in the USA say that Sir Mick Jagger, the iconic lead singer of the Rolling Stones, is set to undergo surgery this week, to replace a damaged valve in his heart.

The band announced on Saturday that the North American leg of its No Filter tour would be put on hold pending "medical treatment" for lead vocalist Jagger.

And there is no official word yet on when the Stones will pick up their tour, but ticket holders for the original shows should hang onto their tickets for the rescheduled dates.

The legendary singer and songwriter, who is 75 years old, announced over the weekend that he would need to postpone the band's upcoming USA tour. Don't fret, his doctor says she will be back on the stage soon.

Jagger himself tweeted that he was "devastated" to delay the tour of 17 shows in the United States and Canada that were due to start later this month and run until June.

"It's a dramatic change, and I think that we're going to see certainly more patients being offered a life-saving and life-improving therapy", said Shah, who was also not involved in the trials.

"I will be working very hard to be back on stage as soon as I can", he added. "Once again, huge apologies to everyone".


A source also told The Sun that: "Mick will be undergoing a non-invasive heart valve procedure".

They added that Mick hopes to be out of hospital within 48 hours this weekend, and will be back on stage by this summer.

Mick Jagger performs with the band during a concert at Berlin's Olympic Stadium in 2018.

Each valve has flaps that open and close during each heartbeat. It will obstruct the flow of blood. "Or valves can get really leaky, and that means the heart then has to work a little bit extra to get the blood to go in the right direction".

Heart valve surgery treats heart valve disease, a condition in which at least one of the four valves that keep blood flowing in the right direction doesn't function properly.
