Mick Jagger skips and dances at Rolling Stones’ tour opener following heart surgery
Mick Jagger gave Chicago a performance to remember 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.
Michael Tarm, who was at the concert, described the singer as a “sprinting, spinning, prancing Mick Jagger.”
“No sign of Jagger illness here. Jagger being Jagger,” Tarm said on Twitter.
The band is scheduled to perform again Tuesday at Soldier Field in Chicago.
The Rolling Stones, which first formed in 1962, have been nominated for 12 Grammy Awards, winning three. Their first international number one hit was “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” in 1965 and became the band’s first gold record.
Jagger released his first solo album in 1985, “She’s the Boss.” Four years later, The Rolling Stones were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Jagger welcomed his eighth child in 2016, with his girlfriend, Melanie Hamrick. He is also a grandfather and became a great grandfather in 2014.
