Longtime Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger is undergoing heart valve replacement surgery this week and has had to cancel the band's tour. The 75-year-old will have the operation this week in New York City, the Daily Mail reports.

The Stones's recent tour, "No Filter," which was scheduled to begin April 20, had planned to make stops in the U.S. and Canada.

Despite the diagnosis, Jagger was spotted in good spirits on Sunday, playing with his children on a beach in Miami.

His bandmates supported their friend on Twitter.

Jagger apologized to fans but said he hoped to be up on stage again soon.

The Rolling Stones are one of the most legendary bands of all time, as is their lead singer. They formed in 1962 and have managed to maintain a massive following into their seventies. Here's to a speedy recovery, Sir Mick!
