Mick Jagger 'doing very well' after medical treatment: rep

The 75-year-old music legend is said to be recovering and in great health following the operation in NY, and doctors are now monitoring the Rolling Stones front man in case any complications arise after he went under the knife.

Several news organizations, including Billboard, have reported that the Rolling Stones singer had surgery to replace a valve in his heart. Doctors also inserted a stent to prop open at least one of the singer's arteries, the New York Post reported.

This will allow Jagger to recover much faster than he would be able to do after a more conventional and invasive procedure.

Billboard magazine, citing unidentified sources, said the surgery involved the replacement of a heart valve by going through Jagger's femoral artery.

Days earlier The Rolling Stones announced they would postpone the North American leg of their upcoming tour so Jagger could receive medical treatment. It said he underwent a transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR).

"I was told he's fine", a Jagger source recently told PEOPLE.

While he could be up and moving in a few days, he'll need additional recovery time before returning to live performances.

Other stops included Jacksonville, Florida; Houston; the New Orleans Jazz Festival; Pasadena and Santa Clara in California; Seattle; Denver; Washington, DC; Philadelphia; Foxborough, Massachusetts; East Rutherford, New Jersey; Chicago; and Ontario, Canada.

"I really hate letting you down like this", he said. On March 30, the band announced the decision to postpone it. Promoters AEG Presents/Concerts West advised fans who bought tickets for the other shows to hold on to them, as they will be valid for the rescheduled tour dates.

The 17-date tour was scheduled to begin on April 20 in Miami. "Once again, huge apologies to everyone".

Jagger previously apologised to fans for postponing the tour, writing that he was "devastated" and would be "working very hard to be back on stage as soon as I can".
