Rolling Stones resched­ule tour dates after Mick Jag­ger’s surgery

The Tribune (SLO) - - Espresso -

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.
