Mick Jagger is in very good shape and ready to make a comeback after having undergone a delicate heart valve surgery.
The Rolling Stones had to postpone their North American summer tour last April in order to give their frontman the time and space needed for the operation.
In an interview with Toronto radio station Q107, Mick Jagger said: “I’m feeling pretty good. Been rehearsing a lot lately in the last few weeks … This morning [I did] a bit of gym. Nothing crazy. Then I go into rehearsal with the rest of the band.”
The legendary band is all set to start their American tour dates in Chicago on June 21st, playing in many US and Canadian cities before ending it in Miami on August 31st.
Speaking about the upcoming concerts, Mick Jagger told the interviewer about how the band always tries to add an element of surprise to break the monotony of their shows by saying, “We’re trying to pick some ones we haven’t done in recent years, stuff we haven’t done before. Most of the time people don’t want too much unusual. People like a little bit unusual. They don’t want 100 per cent unusual.”
When asked how it feels like to be touring at the age of 75, he said “I don’t do it all the time, [like] 12 months a year. When you’re young, that’s what you do. [Today I] spend three or four months on the road in a year and that seems to be quite a good balance.”
The news of Mick Jagger’s operation came in April this year and he was advised by doctors to take some time off. On Wednesday the rocker posted a video of himself dancing in front of a mirror, proving that the break did him good.
