Stones speak up ahead of Mick Jagger Heart Surgery

Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood have both issued statements after the Rolling Stones postponed their 2019 dates because Mick Jagger needs to undergo heart surgery.

Jagger will undergo heart surgery this week to replace a valve in his heart. In most cases, people who have this operation return to normal health in around three months.

Keith Richards tweeted, “A big disappointment for everyone but things need to be taken care of and we will see you soon. Mick, we are always there for you!”

Ronnie said, “We’ll miss you over the next few weeks, but we’re looking forward to seeing you all again very soon”. Here’s to Mick ~ thanks for your supportive messages it means so much to us

The Rolling Stones announced the cancellation on Sunday saying “Mick has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time, as he needs medical treatment”.

The Rolling Stones were to tour America and Canada in 2019.

“I’m so sorry to all our fans in America & Canada with tickets. I really hate letting you down like this,” Mick Jagger said in a statement. “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”.

Mick Jagger is currently in Miami where he was photographed with his current partner (and mother of his ninth child) Melanie Hamrick.
