It now looks as if that date may also be postponed to allow Jagger to make a full recovery.

The band on Saturday announced it was postponing all dates on its tour of the United States and Canada to give Jagger time to receive medical treatment.

Jagger, who follows a strict diet and exercise regime, is expected to make a complete recovery and be on stage by the summer, sources close to the star said.

The heart valve replacement surgery will postpone the band's USA tour, according to the report. "I really hate letting you down like this", he wrote on Twitter.

The Rolling Stones have been forced to postpone a series of US and Canadian stadium dates to allow frontman Mick Jagger to recover from a mystery illness.

The North American stadium tour that was put off was scheduled to run from April 20 to July 29.

If they don't, they could face fines up to $168,000 AUD for an individual and $840,000 AUD for a company. It will be up to juries to determine if social media companies had breached the new laws.

Jagger's bandmates were quick to show their support for Jagger, with Keith Richards, 75, tweeting: "A big disappointment for everyone but things need to be taken care of and we will see you soon".

As for how or why the news broke on the Drudge Report, we're as baffled as you are, though it's perhaps worth noting that Jagger was spotted Sunday in Miami, where Drudge is based.

Ronnie Wood added, "We'll miss you over the next few weeks, but we're looking forward to seeing you all again very soon".

But the same announcement held out hope that Jagger would be ready to resume the tour at an unspecified future date.

US tour promoters AEG Presents and Concerts West also advised ticketholders to hold on to their tickets because they would be valid for the rescheduled dates.
