Rolling Stones North American tour to start in Chicago

Jagger's recovery has been swift after he went under the knife in the early spring.

The rock legends were forced to postpone their upcoming USA tour last month when the 75-year-old was hospitalized and later underwent heart valve replacement surgery.

"Mick has been advised by doctors that he can not go on tour at this time, as he needs medical treatment", the band said in a statement at the time.

The procedure seems to have been a rousing success: Jagger himself posted a video on Twitter yesterday of him dancing in a white T-shirt and black track trousers, fit as a fiddle.

Jagger's heart surgery postponed the band's "No Filter" tour across North America, which was slated to start on April 20 in Florida.

"Looking forward to seeing you there!"


"All of the cities from the previously postponed shows are locked in", the band said in a statement.

The rescheduled tour is set to begin in Chicago on June 21 and continue through August.

This includes one Canadian stop along the way.

Republic Live announced the Stones would be at Burl's Creek Event Grounds in Oro-Medonte for the Saturday, June 29 concert.

The British rockers also added a July 14 date in New Orleans.

Tickets sold for the original dates will be honoured - fans do not need to exchange their tickets. Refunds are available through Ticketmaster, but only for the original buyer - not for tickets that have been transferred.
