By all accounts it appears that Mick Jagger has enjoyed a full recovery following an earlier health scare.

Th Rolling Stones launched their North American tour in Chicago Friday night. Fans were delighted to see an energetic Mick Jagger run, skip and dance on stage.

The 75-year-old showed no sign of ill health three months after the tour was postponed.

Undeniably it showed Jagger was Jagger.

The sold-out show of around 60,000 concert-goers at the Chicago Bears home stadium opened with 'Street Fighting Man', Jagger running from the stage in the end zone down a narrow stage jutting into the crowd.

The Rolling Stones frontman sang for over two hours on a massive stage, with the city's skyline as his backdrop. Fireworks exploding overhead as he takes a bow.

The No Filter Tour was slated to start April 20 in Miami then doctors told Jagger in late March he required treatment, reportedly for a heart valve issue.

The coast-to-coast tour, which the Stones have said will feature classic hits, will include stops in Florida, Texas, Arizona, California, Washington, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Washington, DC.

Tickets sold for the original dates are being honoured, but those who couldn't attend were able to get refunds by accessing their Ticketmaster accounts.
