Mick Jagger, the Rolling Stones frontman, posted a video of him training for future concerts about a month after undergoing heart valve surgery.
The video shows the 75-year-old moving around as he normally does while on stage.
“Bravo the king is back!” wrote one fan.

“Come on! This is what legends are made of,” wrote another.
“He’s back,” said a third.
Jagger reportedly underwent surgery in April and was forced to cancel forthcoming shows in North America.
Thank you everyone for all your messages of support, I’m feeling much better now and on the mend – and also a huge thank you to all the hospital staff for doing a superb job.

After the procedure, he tweeted: “Thank you, everyone, for all your messages of support, I’m feeling much better now and on the mend—and also a huge thank you to all the hospital staff for doing a superb job.”
Melanie Hamrick, his girlfriend, said that Jagger was “doing great” and “thank goodness,” AP reported.
“It was cute,” she told AP his backstage speech and visit. “He wanted to watch the piece. It was really special that he was there and able to see it. It feels good (for the dancers) when the choreographer and the person who wrote the music are watching you. It gave everyone an extra special feeling.”
Last week, Jagger wrote in an April 11 Facebook that he was on “a walk in the park.”
A week before that, he said in a post: “Thank you everyone for all your messages of support, I’m feeling much better now and on the mend—and also a huge thank you to all the hospital staff for doing a superb job,” regarding the heart-valve replacement surgery.
Billboard.com reported that doctors accessed the singer’s heart valve via his femoral artery and had also “been monitoring the singer for any complications that could arise from the procedure, including excess bleeding.”
“Jagger will need to rest after completing the transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), sources say. The minimally invasive procedure allows Jagger to avoid major surgery—doctors are able to repair the heart valve using a catheter that accesses a major artery without opening the chest,” Billboard.com reported.
Earlier this year, the Rolling Stones announced the band would postpone its North America tour.
“I’m so sorry to all our fans in America & Canada with tickets. I really hate letting you down like this,” Jagger previously said on Facebook. “I’m devastated for having to postpone the tour but I will be working very hard to be back on stage as soon as I can. Once again, huge apologies to everyone.”
