=> And he looks good! He was seen yesterday visiting Melanie Hamrick and her ballet at her Rolling Stones dance. So he was backstage again. See more details and pics usatoday.com, dailymail.co.uk, tmz.com. No news about the rescheduled tour-dates so far.
=> Honk is out for grabs! "Rolling Stones Release Career-Spanning Best Of Compilation 'Honk'" (billboard.com)
=> Greetings, folks! Sasha Allen just posted on Instagram: "Almost time for rehearsa!" [sic!] with a pic of her singing close and together with Mick. Well .... :-)
=> One more week gone by already! Tempus fugit! Best news yet is that Mick is back on his feet. But with a new valve - let's be serious - he must take his time. I would apprechiate, too, if Mick would step down considerably with his running, jumping and prancing during gigs. Woah, that must be really, really hard for him. Can you imagine? Then again, he could play more harp, how 'bout that? hehehe ... Not only Keith loves it when Mick plays harp. Ok - so the two weeks until the new schedule is announced has gone by - thank god - and Mick takes care of himself, it seems. Let's keep our fingers firmly crossed for his best recovery! New tourdates coming soon ...
=> ... and kickin'! - He just tweeted a pic of him, entitled "A Walk in the Park" and with a grin. Looks promising, Mick, right on! All best wishes from us to you! See that on Twitter, Instagram or with more text at The Mirror.
=> This year, the NO Jazzfest seems to run out of luck! After the Stones as headliners cancelled their gig at the Fest, now their replacement, Fleetwood Mac has cancelled their gig, too, due to singer Stevie Nicks being knocked out by the flu. Accordingly, The New Orleans Advocate Journalist Keith Spera asks: Is no one able to headline the 2019 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival on May 2? One can almost smell the frustration here. rollingstone.com, too, has a report on this subject. But nevertheless, health issues rule. Stevie already feels better by now, but doctors suggested that The Mac should reschedule the remaining four shows of their North American tour in order to allow Stevie full recovery. A great spectacle this year's Stones tour is already - and it hasn't even started, hehehe ...
=> The Rolling Stones celebrate the Bridges To Babylon Tour! They will publish the complete Bremen concert from September 2nd, 1998, with 22 songs plus add 4 songs from Chicago's Soldier Field - see the setlit below. Release date is out June 21st - you can prorder it at eagle-rock.com. As usual, this show comes in multiple formats - DVD + 2CD, BLU-RAY + 2CD, 3LP (Coloured Vinyl), DIGITAL VIDEO and DIGITAL AUDIO coming soon.
=> We got a message from Mick, just after his surgery:
"Thank you everyone for all your messages of support, I’m feeling much better now and on the mend - and also a huge thank you to all the hospital staff for doing a superb job."
- well that was really nice and it seems as Mick and all of us have a reason to be thankful!
See them work the Olympia, 2003:
=> In stead of The Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac will play the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on Thursday, May 2! Nice for Fleetwood Fans, a bummer to us Stones fans. But let's see - maybe the Stones will play the Jazzfest next year!? See billboard.com or consequenceofsound.net for more on this...
=> Big relief everywhere: According to sources, Billboard reports that Mick has completed his heart valve procedure in New York and is recovering and in great health! To be precise, Mick underwent a transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). He has to rest now for some days while his artery can heal and to avoid the danger of severe bleedings. If you are interested in more details conderning this procedure, have a look at foxnews.com [thx Jean-Pierre!] for what Dr. Marc Siegel has to tell about it. In a nutshell: Mick has made a successful first step for recovery; now let us all keep our fingers crossed that all goes well during the next days!
=> Ok, Mick has eveloped a valve condition as we now know. By now, we're slowly becoming heart valve specialists ourselves, hehehe ... so according to dailymail.co.uk, the procedure which Mick has to face to fix his heart valve can be minimally-invasive. As he has taken care of his physis, he's the ideal patient for this method where the cest is not opened but where the valve is fixed by passing a replacement through a catheter. Thus, he could recover this procedure within about two weeks, rather than two months...
=> The Stones management must have been really busy! As you can read at billboard.com or at bbc.com, the tourstart was shifted towards July and the new dates will be announced within the next weeks! Sadly, the date for the New Orleans Jazz festival, May 2nd, has been cancelled. Tough for the organizers there, they have to look for a replacement. All other dates seem to stay in the schedule, including the date in Canada - the exact dates are expected to be stated within the next weeks. Most dates were booked with NFL stadiums and until the next season, starting September 9 this year, dates can be rescheduled without great difficulties.
Some memories from 2017...
=> One more UPDATE: According to mediaite.com, Mick "is set to undergo heart valve replacement surgery in NYC this week ... Mick is expected to make a full recovery and will be back on stage by summer ... The procedure has a 95% success rate. And Jagger, 75, is in extraordinary physical condition". See also rollingstone.com, where it's said that Mick will undergo his surgery this Friday.
=> UPDATE: Mick will undergo heart surgery this week to replace a damaged valve! According to dailymail.co.uk, Mick is going to have a damaged valve replaced this week in New York. So this explains the need to postpone the tour. Let's keep our fingers crossed for Mick and that he comes back clean and sound after his surgery!
=> Mick is well - but bored... As the SUN reports, thesun.co.uk Mick is resting in Miami but he's getting bored already. A 'source' is told to say: "He’s massively frustrated, he wants to be getting back out there and at this moment in time he’s feeling absolutely fine. [...] Of course he has taken the medical advice on board, but he looks after himself well and feels totally capable at this moment in time. He’s optimistic he won’t be laid up for long, and at the moment he’s just hanging out in Miami with the other guys.". So far, so good. Again: the tour is POSTPONED, and NOT cancelled!
Check out the dailymail.co.uk with some hilarious pictures about our heroes and some super cute little twins, too...
=> No April fooling here, promised! According to telegraph.co.uk , Mick is in perfectly good health, but has in fact only injured himself after training for shows. That's no big surprise as Mick, 75, traines very hard, as we all know, and especially in prparation for tours. So basically, he is well, but will need to recover from some injury he got while training - which could be some muscle or joint issue. Whatever be the case: get well soon, Mick. And let's not forget to be VERY thankful for the other band members who seem to have passed the check-up well!
The tour will be postponed for around a month and the promoters AEG Presents/Concerts West told fans that their tickets will still be valid at the rescheduled concerts.
=> Meanwhile, Little Steven has some news for us: He tweets "I’ve been told by someone who knows that Mick Jagger’s ailment is thankfully temporary and insignificant. The Rolling Stones’ immortal endurance continues to inspire all of us! Meanwhile, catch my interview with Keith on YouTube this week."
=> Scheduled to start on April 20 in Miami Gardens, Florida, the tour is postponed due to singer Mick's health problems!. The band tweets:
"Unfortunately today the Rolling Stones have had to announce the postponement of their upcoming US / Canada tour dates - we apologise for any inconvenience this causes those who have tickets to shows but wish to reassure fans to hold onto these existing tickets, as they will be valid for the rescheduled dates, which will be announced shortly.
Mick has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time, as he needs medical treatment. The doctors have advised Mick that he is expected to make a complete recovery so that he can get back on stage as soon as possible.".
Mick himself, also apologises:
"I’m so sorry to all our fans in America & Canada with tickets. I really hate letting you down like this. I’m devastated for having to postpone the tour but I will be working very hard to be back on stage as soon as I can. Once again, huge apologies to everyone.".
Ronni tweets: "We’ll miss you over the next few weeks, but we’re looking forward to seeing you all again very soon. Here’s to Mick(strength) ~ thanks for your supportive messages it means so much to us"
Keith, too, says: "A big disappointment for everyone but things need to be taken care of and we will see you soon. Mick, we are always there for you!"
Someone 'close to the band' according to pagesix.com said, that during the usual pre-tour check-up docors found something that required 'immediate attention'. With the tourstart 20 days away, I don't think it can be just some case of larygitis, as has happened before. The source also mentioned, that it was not something serious and that - most important to all of us, Mick would make a complete recovery. So, speculations fly ... maybe something like a hip replacement or something? Whatever it is, Mick, all of us wish you a quick and sound recovery!!!!
WOAH, folks - that came out of the blue for us! Get well soon, Mick!
=> According to rumors and now a newspaper article, the band has taken camp in Miami for the rehearsals. See the Sydney Morning Herald with a nice report about the 30th birthday of "Talk Is Cheap" (recommended read) and you'll find the line about "the Stones head to Miami to rehearse for a 13-date North American tour" near the end of the lines.

=> There's 22 seconds of Mick playing a Tele and singing the refrain of a new song of his, "Really wanna tell the truth" sounding like a danceable groovy track; whether this has to do with the new Stones album remains unknown. Mick feels fine! Watch it on Instagram, too, if you prefer.
=> Yes, folks! Nevertheless, he's very much looking forward to hittin' the road again and get that album done. But that is kinda boring, he feels, towards the end and it's hard work. So go to rollingstone.com and read what he has to say about that... however, although the pics there are really nice, I for one like the picture of him at the german Rolling Stone issue much better, hehehe...

Just see the Tweet by 'Just Pete' on Twitter for the tongue-pic and have a look at the Twitter-video from Focborough - I'ld say, we're on to something new coming up!
