Mick Jagger will undergo surgery to replace a valve in his heart, Rolling Stone reports. As a result of the procedure and recovery period, the Rolling Stones postponed the North American leg of their No Filter tour, which ran from April 20th to July 29th, the magazine reports.

When the postponement was initially announced, a rep for the band said, “Mick Jagger has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time as he needs medical treatment. The doctors have advised Mick that he is expected to make a complete recovery so that he can get back on stage as soon as possible,” Rolling Stone reports.

Jagger is 75 years old.

Among the cancellations was the Stones’ appearance at Jazz Fest.
