Now a source has told Billboard.com that the 75-year-old rocker had the operation in NY and is on the road to recovery.

Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger said on Friday he was "on the mend" after undergoing surgery that caused postponement of the band's planned North American tour.

"The TAVR has become so successful and reliable usually with minimal side effects, that it is now taking the place of the more traditional and invasive surgery". Doctors accessed his heart valve using a catheter that was inserted through his femoral artery, avoiding the need to open Jagger's chest.

The Rolling Stones frontman announced earlier this month that the band were rescheduling all their USA shows because he needed medical treatment, with rumours then emerging that he had heart issues. Assuming there are no post-surgery complications, the singer could be released from the hospital within a few days.

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.

Such an exemption is justified because it avoids "complex and disproportionately burdensome" procedures, the Commission argued. The Commission said this was only justified if the finance profits did not come from British activities.

Jagger expressed disappointment at having to postpone the dates, saying he was "so sorry to all our fans in America & Canada with tickets".

News of Jagger's health issues first broke on March 30.

The band are working with promoters to reschedule the shows.

Originally slated to begin in April, the No Filter tour is now expected to begin in July, Billboard said. "I really hate letting you down like this", Jagger tweeted on Saturday. "Once again, huge apologies to everyone", Jagger said.
