Just a few days after it was revealed The Rolling Stones had to postpone their recent tour due to health problems of their frontman, Mick Jagger, the legendary singer-songwriter posted on his Twitter account that he’s doing great and appreciates all of the kind words from fans and followers.
Mick went under the knife reportedly for a heart valve replacement surgery, and he’s grateful for the outpouring of support among his gigantic fanbase. Moreover, the 75-year-old tweeted on his account, “and also a huge thank you to all the hospital staff for doing a superb job.”
Jagger’s representative revealed Mick’s improving health in a statement. He claimed the singer was “doing very well” and doctors and other medical professionals expect him to make a “full recovery.” You can check out part of Jagger’s tweet below:
Thank you everyone for all your messages of support, I’m feeling much better now and on the mend – and also a huge thank you to all the hospital staff for doing a superb job.

As it was previously reported, the legendary rock star had to receive heart surgery in New York just a couple of days after the Stones announced the next part of their No Filter Tour. Earlier in the week, Jagger announced on his social media that he had to cancel the tour.
An insider who spoke with the publication, People Magazine, said he had heard the singer was doing “fine.” While most people would be able to start working again shortly after the surgery, Mick has to stay back for a little while because his job is so stressful and physical.
On Saturday, Jagger took to his Twitter account to apologize to all of the American and Canadian fans who wouldn’t get out to see him and the rest of the band. Billboard reported that Mick had to get a surgery known as the transcatheter aortic valve replacement, more commonly known as TAVR.
The tour, initially, was supposed to begin on the 20th of April, 2019. Fans, for the most part, have appeared nothing but supportive, but one can only expect cancelations, considering most of the Rolling Stones are in their 70s and 80s now.
