Rolling Stones reschedule tour dates after Mick Jagger’s surgery
Six weeks after the Rolling Stones postponed the North American leg of its “No Filter” tour so that Mick Jagger, the band’s frontman, could undergo surgery, the band has announced new dates for the shows.
The Stones’ stadium tour of the United States and Canada was supposed to start in Miami on April 20, but Jagger, 75, announced March 30 that the concerts would be pushed back. On April 5, a spokeswoman said he had successfully undergone medical treatment; NBC News reported that he had surgery to replace a damaged heart valve, a procedure known as transcatheter aortic valve replacement.
The final leg of the tour will include all 17 postponed concerts, starting in Chicago with shows June 21 and 25 and ending at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium on Aug. 31. They will play at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, on Aug. 1 and 5.
A new show in New Orleans has also been added after the band was forced to cancel its appearance at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on May 2.
