LOS ANGELES (AP) — Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts will likely miss the band’s upcoming U.S. tour to allow him to recover from an unspecified medical procedure.

A spokesperson for the musician said Wednesday the procedure was “completely successful” but that Watts needs time to recuperate. The Stones are set to resume their No Filter tour on Sept. 26 in St. Louis and visit several U.S. cities, including Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Rehearsals are set to begin in a couple weeks.

Watts, 80, will be replaced by understudy Steve Jordan, who has played with Keith Richards for years.
