He keeps rolling on! Mick Jagger reveals he is on the road to recovery in his first interview after undergoing a heart valve procedure in April.
“I’m feeling pretty good,” the legendary rocker, 75, told Toronto radio station Q107.1. “Been rehearsing a lot lately in the last few weeks … This morning [I did] a bit of gym. Nothing crazy. Then I go into rehearsal with the rest of the band.” The Rolling Stones frontman unfortunately had to postpone part of his band’s No Filter tour earlier this year.
However, the icon said that he isn’t exactly diving back headfirst into touring again. “I don’t do it all the time, [like] 12 months a year,” he explained. “When you’re young, that’s what you do. [Today, I] spend three or four months on the road in a year and that seems to be quite a good balance.” The band will be back on the road on June 21 and 25 in Chicago, with 14 more stops to follow.
Mick was quite distraught when he first revealed to his fans that he would have to put a pause on the band’s tour to deal with his personal issue. “I’m so sorry to all our fans in America and Canada with tickets. I really hate letting you down like this,” the singer tweeted on March 30. “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 everyone.”
The hitmaker did keep his supporters updated on his condition as time went on. “Thank you everyone for all your messages of support, I’m feeling much better now and on the mend,” Mick wrote on April 5. “And also a huge thank you to all the hospital staff for doing a superb job.”
Everyone is so happy to hear that Mick is doing better, and we can’t wait to see him strutting his shoulders on stage soon!
