Recently, Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger scared the hell out of rock 'n' roll fans across the globe when he underwent heart valve surgery in April. So serious was his condition that the Stones upcoming tour had to be put on hold while the 75-year-old Jagger recovered (after all he's not immortal — that would be Keith Richards).
But now, a video has surfaced of a lithe, bouncy, energetic Jagger preening, posing, and rocking his best dance moves. That, and news of a rescheduled "No Filter" tour should make Stones fans, well, take heart, as the operation has clearly started Jagger up.
On May 16, The Stones announced that all postponed shows in 17 markets have been rescheduled. The Houston date at NRG Stadium is now rescheduled for July 27.
Tickets sold for the original date will be honored, fans do not need to exchange their tickets. Those who cannot attend the rescheduled date can refund their tickets by accessing their Ticketmaster account. For transferred tickets, the refund will go to the fan who originally bought the tickets, once they have been transferred back, according to a statement.
The tour will now kick off in Chicago with two shows, June 21 and June 25, then head for Ontario on June 29 followed by dates in Washington, D.C.; Foxboro, Massachusetts; East Rutherford, New Jersey; Philadelphia; Houston; Jacksonville, Florida; a new show in New Orleans; Denver; Seattle; shows in California (Santa Clara, Pasadena); Glendale, Arizona; and, finally, Miami on August 31.
Expect classic such as "Sympathy For The Devil", "Paint It Black", "Brown Sugar", "Miss You", "It’s Only Rock N Roll," as well as some “special gems from their celebrated history,” according to a statement.
Bravo, Mick. We miss you — and can’t wait to see what kind of moves you have in store for H-Town.
