On Thursday evening, Mick Jagger made his first public appearance since undergoing heart surgery.
The Rolling Stones frontman — who had a stent put in an artery earlier this month — attended the Youth America Grand Prix’s 20th-anniversary gala to see his girlfriend Melanie Hamrick debut a ballet that’s set to Stones music.
We’re told the rock legend slipped in a side entrance because he wanted to keep a low profile.
According to an insider, he told organizers, “When I go to a fund-raiser, it’s like Santa Claus at Macy’s: Everyone wants to sit on my lap and have a photo taken.”
Added the insider, “He says he’s well and hale.”
We’re told Jagger was keen to be at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center to see the world premiere of the piece, which he orchestrated, and to “congratulate the performers right after.”
Page Six first reported that Hamrick was putting the ballet together.
The Stones postponed the US leg of their tour, No Filter, in late March after doctors told Jagger he wasn’t healthy enough to go on the road.
He underwent the heart surgery in New York a few days later.
