CHICAGO — Please allow them to reintroduce themselves: The Rolling Stones are set to return to the stage.
The band plays Friday night at Chicago’s Soldier Field after postponing their North American tour because frontman Mick Jagger needed medical treatment.
“Mick Jagger has successfully undergone treatment. He is doing very well and is expected to make a full recovery,” the band’s spokesperson, Fran Curtis, told USA TODAY in a statement in April without elaborating on the nature of the procedure.
Billboard and Rolling Stone reported that he underwent a heart valve replacement surgery called TAVR at a New York Hospital.

Six weeks after Jagger’s reported surgery, the band announced that theywere ready to get the show on the road and released their newly-rescheduled tour dates.
St. Paul & The Broken Bones are expected to open Friday, and Whiskey Myers will open during a second Chicago show scheduled on Tuesday.
The Rolling Stones said in a statement last month the concerts will feature classic hits such as “Sympathy For The Devil” and “Paint It Black.”
