UPDATE: Rolling Stones lead singer Mick Jagger had successful heart surgery and could be out of the hospital within the week.

Reports indicate the 75-year-old Jagger had a heart valve procedure and stent inserted in a sagging artery. The Stones cancelled a major US tour when Jagger was advised to undergo the procedure rather than continue performing.

No rescheduling for the missed dates has been announced.

EARLIER: Mick Jagger, age 75, has been ordered to undergo medical treatment by his doctors, leading the Rolling Stones to postpone a major US stadium tour.

Details on Jagger’s condition were not made public. The septuagenarian has maintained a fitness regimen that allows him to keep up frenzied stage activity and retain a lean frame, allowing the Stones to continue touring after more than 50 years of music-making.

“Mick has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time, as he needs medical treatment,” said a Twitter post on the band’s official account “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.”

Tickets will be valid for the “No Filter” tour when it is rescheduled. The tour was to start April 20 in Miami.
