(CNN / KYW Newsradio) — The Rolling Stones announced Wednesday they will hit the road again, a month after front man Mick Jagger had a heart valve replacement. He'll be joining Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood for the North American "No Filter" tour this summer.

The rescheduled Philadelphia performance will be July 23 at Lincoln Financial Field. Tickets sold for the original date will be honored, and those who cannot attend the rescheduled date can get assistance through Ticketmaster.

The band is also hitting MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., on Aug. 1 and 5.

Maroon 5, who sing about "Moves Like Jagger" in their hit single by the same name, may need a sequel called "Moves Like Jagger ... After Heart Surgery."

Just weeks after undergoing a procedure to replace his heart valve, Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger posted a video of himself practicing some very energetic dance moves Wednesday in an empty studio.

In the 22-second video, the 75-year-old dances to The Wombats' song "Techno Fan," sending excited fans into a frenzy.

"Go Dadda!" his daughter, Georgia May Jagger, posted under the video.

"Bravo, the king is back," veteran music executive Tommy Mottola added.

Jagger underwent a heart procedure to replace a valve last month, prompting the Rolling Stones to postpone their North American tour set to kick off on April 20 in Miami Gardens, Florida. At the time, the band said doctors advised Jagger that he needed medical treatment.

"We apologize for any inconvenience this causes those who have tickets to shows but wish to reassure fans to hold onto these existing tickets, as they will be valid for the rescheduled dates," the band said.

Jagger also apologized to his fans last month, and said he was devastated about postponing the tour.

"I will be working very hard to be back on stage as soon as I can," he said.

By the looks of the video, he sure is.
