Mick Jagger is “feeling pretty good” in the run-up to his rescheduled tour following open heart surgery.

The Rolling Stones’ frontman was recently forced to postpone the band’s tour after receiving open heart surgery. After taking the time to recover, it looks as if Mick Jagger is ready to get back on stage.

“I’m feeling pretty good,” Mick Jagger told the Rolling Stone. “Been rehearsing a lot lately in the last few weeks … This morning [I did] a bit of gym. Nothing crazy. Then I go into rehearsal with the rest of the band.”

He also revealed what kind of material the band has been practicing. He says that they have thrown in a couple of curve balls but will also be delivering the trusty classics the fans come to hear.

“The favorite ones people like to hear are, you know, ‘Paint it Black, ‘Honky Tonk [Women]’ and ‘Satisfaction’ and things like that,” he said. “We don’t always necessarily do all of them. We sometimes drop one or two, but there’s maybe ten favorites. I don’t know how people would feel if you didn’t do any of them. I think people would say, ‘Oh, that’s a bit unfortunate, I came to hear this.’”
