On Monday (April 1), the celebrity gossip outlet reported that the 75-year-old rocker is set to undergo the procedure, which was first reported by Drudge Report, later this week in New York City. Jagger is reportedly in "extraordinary physical condition" and is expected to make a full recovery after the surgery.
"You can be back at work within weeks following the procedure," an insider told the outlet. "But it could be because the health checks are all set into the insurance for the tour. Maybe they're being careful [by pushing back their trek]."
