Just days after undergoing heart surgery Mick Jagger says he's feeling better and is thanking fans for their support and well wishes.

Mick's representative has also confirmed he's "expected to make a full recovery" following the surgery.

Jagger has now undergone that treatment, and tweeted a positive update to his followers. Though the release did not specify what the treatment was for, they assured fans that the rocker is "expected to make a complete recovery". Doctors accessed his heart valve using a catheter that was inserted through his femoral artery, avoiding the need to open Jagger's chest.

On Sunday (March 31) the Stones announced they were rescheduling their North American No Filter Tour so that Jagger could have the procedure.

Originally slated to begin in April, the tour is now expected to begin in July, Billboard said.

Mick Jagger, 75, is recovering in hospital from heart surgery after cancelling Rolling Stones shows. "Once again, huge apologies to everyone".

Jagger, who has 8 children, 5 grandchildren and a great-granddaughter, has maintained his energetic stage performances well into his 70s.

The Stones were scheduled to play State Farm Stadium in Glendale on May 7.

In their early years, the Stones were known for their louche lifestyle, with Jagger seen as the incarnation of the trope "sex, drugs and rock 'n roll".

Fleetwood Mac were recently chosen to replace The Stones at Jazz Fest.

Billboard reported that sources said Jagger is now recovering from the procedure, which was performed Thursday in NY, and is "in great health". The band made the announcement on Saturday, and said the tour needs to be rescheduled so that Jagger could undergo "medical treatment".
