Rolling Stone’s anticipated tour in the North Americas was supposed to kick off this coming April 20, 2019. But due to an unfortunate circumstance, the singer had no choice but to announce that he and the band decided to postpone the tour. A statement from the band reads,
“Mick has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time, as he needs medical treatment,”Statement from the Rolling Stones
The band also extended their deepest apologies to their fans and assuring them of their bought tickets by stating,
“We apologize for any inconvenience this causes those who have tickets to shows but wish to reassure fans to hold onto these existing tickets, as they will be valid for the rescheduled dates, which will be announced shortly.”Statement from the Rolling Stones
Bandmates Ronnie Wood and Keith Richards added on twitter,
“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!”Keith Richards Twitter Post
“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”Ronnie Wood Twitter Post
The singer/songwriter Mick Jagger, 75, also announced the saddening news to his fans by posting on twitter,
“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.”Mick Jagger Twitter Post
According to sources, the minimally invasive operation is a means to avoid major and more threatening procedures in the future.

Coming from the singer himself, the surgery was a success and assured everyone that he’s feeling much better now. In his recovering condition, he seems strong and active enough to tweet a “thank you” to the medical staff and to everyone that supported him during this troubled time of his.
“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.”Mick Jagger Twitter Post
With the success of the operation, the band was confident enough to announce the rescheduled dates of their North America No Filter Tour. Instead of April, the tour is now moved this coming July. The exact dates and time will soon to follow.
Although the operation was a success, the frontman still needs his much-needed recovery time for his operated artery to fully heal. It was mentioned that he only needed several days at most to avoid any bleeding issues before he could be released, but he was no way near in condition to be able to perform on stage. Probably also the reason why the rescheduled dates were moved by a couple of months. Rest assured, the tour is moving on, just not on the planned dates that they scheduled.
