Lookin’ good, Mick Jagger! It’s supposedly been a rough couple of weeks for the Rolling Stones rocker, who reportedly underwent surgery last week to replace a heart valve. It seems like the music iconic is now on the mend, though, as he looked happy and healthy in the first Instagram photo he shared since being in the hospital.
“A walk in the park!” the 75-year-old captioned the sweet pic. In the snap, Mick can be seen subtly smiling while posing in front of a blooming tree. The “Paint It Black” singer donned a blue button-up shirt paired with gray jeans and sneakers. He also tied the look together with a matching baseball cap.
Since the news broke of his condition, fans of the perennial heartthrob were thrilled about his return to social media. “This photo just brightened up my entire week, thank you, Mick, for always making us happy,” one fan gushed. “So glad to see you all healthy and recovering here! Love you Mick!” another user wrote.
Even those closest to the rock legend — including daughter Georgia May Jagger and friend Lenny Kravitz — took to the comment section to send their praise. “Love you Dada,” Georgia, 27, wrote, along with three purple heart emojis. “@mickjagger Yeah man!” Lenny, 54, chimed in.
The news of Mick’s alleged valve replacement surgery in NYC came just three days after he took to Twitter to announce that the Rolling Stones were postponing the latest leg of their No Filter Tour — which was set to kick off in Miami on April 20 — due to health reasons.
“I’m so sorry to all our fans in America and Canada with tickets. I really hate letting you down like this,” the “Sympathy for the Devil” crooner wrote in the heartbreaking message 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.”
Thankfully for Mick’s fans and family, the dad-of-eight is back in action. In a statement released days after his suspected surgery, Mick took to social media to give his fans a positive update. “Thank you everyone for all your messages of support, I’m feeling much better now and on the mend,” the “Satisfaction” singer tweeted on April 5. “Also a huge thank you to all the hospital staff for doing a superb job.”
In addition, Mick’s rep only further explained in the statement that, although it’s not ideal, postponing the tour was crucial.” If it was someone else, they’d need to recover for two weeks but because Mick jumps around and the performances are strenuous, he needed to postpone the tour.”
We wish Mick a speedy recovery!
