On Thursday night in New York City, Mick Jagger attended his first public event since undergoing heart surgery earlier this month: the U.S. premiere of his girlfriend Melanie Hamrick's new ballet, Porte Rouge.
Page Six reports that the Rolling Stones singer quietly slipped into a side entrance to catch the performance, which was held at New York's Lincoln Center as part of the Youth America Grand Prix dance charity's 20th anniversary gala.
TMZ posted a video showing Jagger entering the venue. In the clip, a reporter asks Mick how he's feeling, to which the rock legend replies, "Good."
An insider source told Page Six that Jagger says he's "well and hale." The source also noted that Mick was excited to attend the premiere of the performance, which he orchestrated, so he could "congratulate the performers right after."
The ballet is set to the music of The Rolling Stones.
As previously reported, The Rolling Stones postponed their planned No Filter tour of North America after it was discovered that Jagger needed a heart valve replaced. The trek was to have started on April 20 in Miami Gardens, Florida. No word yet on when the tour will be rescheduled.
