AceShowbiz - Mick Jagger continues to share update on his health after postponing The Rolling Stones' upcoming North American tour to go under the knife. The rocker took to Instagram on Thursday, April 11 to share his first photo since undergoing a heart valve replacement surgery.
The 75-year-old British singer took the photo while going out for "a walk in the park" as he wrote in the caption. Looking in good spirits, he posed with the background of trees and white flowers as he dressed casually, yet stylish in a blue checkered shirt and gray jeans, with a gray baseball cap and black-and-white sneakers.
His followers were excited to see Mick recovering well. Lenny Kravitz wrote in the comment section, "@mickjagger Yeah man!" Mick's daughter Georgia May Jagger commented, "Love you Dada," three purple heart emojis, while his son Lucas Jagger left four red heart emojis.
Piers Morgan wrote, "Good to see you back on your feet, Sir Michael." A fan additionally commented on the post, "This photo just brighten up my entire week, thank you Mick for always making us happy. We are so GRATEFUL that you are recovering and your surgery was successful! This world wouldn't be the same without you, we love you so much!"
The Rolling Stones announced postponement of their North American tour in late March, citing Mick's health issue as he needed medical treatment. The band's frontman apologized to fans via Twitter for the delay, writing, "I'm so sorry to all our fans in America & Canada with tickets. I really hate letting you down like this. 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."
He had a surgery in New York City to have a stent placed in his heart after being diagnosed with an undisclosed illness. His representative later said that the treatment was successful, adding, "He is doing very well and is expected to make a full recovery."
Mick tweeted a few days later that he's "feeling much better now and on the mend." He also thanked everyone for their messages of support and "the hospital staff for doing a superb job."
The U.S. leg of the Stones' "No Filter Tour", which was scheduled to kick off in Miami, Florida on 20 April, is now expected to be rescheduled for July.
