Washington D.C, April 2: The fans of "Rolling Stones" singer Michael Philip Jagger are disappointed after the dates of his upcoming United States and Canada tour were postponed on Saturday, as the singer would undergo heart surgery to replace a valve in his heart, according to reports.

The US leg of the Rolling Stones' No Filter tour was set to begin in Miami in just a few weeks, but has since been postponed. Don't fret, his doctor says she will be back on the stage soon.

On Monday, Rolling Stone magazine reported Jagger will undergo heart valve replacement surgery.

The singer will undergo surgery in a NY hospital this week, according to the reports.

At Champions Retreat, she followed it up with what she called a "perfect round" - all 18 greens hit in regulation and no bogeys. Australian Julienne Soo struggled in the first round, carding nine-over 81 after covering her first nine in seven over.

Jagger himself tweeted that he was "devastated" to delay the tour of 17 shows in the USA and Canada that were due to start later this month and run until June.

"I really hate letting you down like this", Jagger said in a statement.

Jagger himself is optimistic tweeting to his 2 million followers that he is devastated, but working hard to get back on stage soon. "Once again, huge apologies to everyone".

Heart valve problems had until recent years meant serious open heart surgery.

Heart valve surgery treats heart valve disease, a condition in which at least one of the four valves that keep blood flowing in the right direction doesn't function properly.

Heart surgeon and U.S. television presenter Dr Mehmet Oz said "about about 10 percent of people at his age have problem with their aortic valve which can lead to chest pain and dizziness". It will obstruct the flow of blood.

Oz said the other valve which also frequently requires surgery is the mitral value, which is further into the heart.

They add: "Whether or not you have heart valve surgery, and whether the operation is a fix or a replacement will depend on many factors".

Mick Jagger recovering from surgery
Drudge's story had claimed - correctly - that Jagger would enter a NY hospital this week to undergo the procedure. The Stones postponed their scheduled No Filter tour in order to give the 75-year-old singer time to recover.

Heart valve surgery is needed when the heart valve has built up calcium over time.
