The Rolling Stones tour postponement, officially attributed last week to an unspecific health concern for Mick Jagger, is due to the need for heart surgery for the singer, according to multiple reports.

The band announced Saturday that Jagger was told by doctors "he can not go on tour at this time".

With fans taking to social media to say they were praying for Jagger, the band tried to dampen fears by adding that "Mick is expected to make a complete recovery so that he can get back on stage as soon as possible".

Leading industry magazine Rolling Stone reported on Monday the cause was heart valve surgery, following an earlier report from Drudge Report, which added the procedure would take place this Friday in NY.

The 75-year-old Rolling Stone frontman was scheduled to embark on a North American stadium tour.

"I'm so sorry to all our fans in America & Canada with tickets".

Jagger himself is optimistic tweeting to his 2 million followers that he is devastated, but working hard to get back on stage soon.

Organizers have advised ticketholders to hang on to their existing tickets, which will be valid for rescheduled tour dates.

"Once again, huge apologies to everyone". According to the Drudge Report, the procedure will take place on Friday in NY.

Doctors said that if the surgery goes well, Jagger could be back on his feet relatively rapidly.

Oz said the other valve which also frequently requires surgery is the mitral value, which is further into the heart. "If you don't have any other medical problems, your life expectancy comes back nearly to normal", Shah said.

Heart valve problems had until recent years meant serious open heart surgery.

"We are deeply committed to our community, fans, attendees and partners and look forward to welcoming Mick and The Rolling Stones to Burl's Creek as soon as he has recovered", said the emailed statement.
