Mick Jagger gave Chicago a performance to remember on Friday night. It’s been less than three months since the 75-year-old legend had heart surgery. But you can hardly tell by the moves he unleashed in the first stop of The Rolling Stones’ US tour.
The band postponed the initial kick-off date after Jagger underwent a heart valve replacement procedure in early April. The tour was originally set to begin April 20 in Miami Gardens, Florida.
Well, it’s safe to say Jagger’s now fully recovered. And thousands of fans were thrilled to see him back on stage for the first performance in the tour.
A representative for Jagger said in April he successfully underwent treatment and that he was expected to make a full recovery.
All the cities on the tour that were previously postponed are locked in, and there is a new date in New Orleans. A second show at Soldier Field, the home stadium of the Chicago Bears NFL team, is scheduled for Tuesday.
Tickets sold for the original dates are being honoured, but those who could not attend were able to get refunds by accessing their Ticketmaster accounts.
