The Rolling Stones are ready to get back on the road after postponing their North American tour because Mick Jagger needed medical treatment .

The rockers announced Thursday the No Filter tour will kick off at Soldier Field in Chicago with two shows on June 21 and 25. All the cities previously postponed are locked in (see below), including Seattle’s CenturyLink Field on Aug. 14 and Pasadena’s Rose Bowl on Aug. 22, and there’s a new date in New Orleans (July 14).

Tickets sold for the original dates will be honored, but those who can’t attend can get refunds by accessing their Ticketmaster accounts.

The group says in a statement the concerts will feature classic hits such as “Sympathy For The Devil” and “Paint It Black.”

The No Filter Tour was slated to start April 20 in Miami. However, doctors told the 75-year-old Jagger in late March he couldn’t go on tour.

Jagger tweeted a video Wednesday of him dancing around a studio in front of a mirror weeks after he underwent medical treatment, reportedly for a heart valve issue.
