27 September (WNN) — The Rolling Stones have restarted no filter The tour following the COVID-19 delay and the death of their drummer Charlie Watts.
The rock band performed on Sunday at the Dome at the Center of America in St.
The Rolling Stones paid tribute to Watts, who died in August. The show began with an empty stage and a drum beat as Watts’s pictures flashed on a video board.
Following the performance of “It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll (But I Like It)”, Rolling Stones members Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood took to the stage to honor Watts.
“I just want to say that seeing those images of Charlie on screen is pretty emotional,” Jagger said. “It’s the first tour we’ve ever had without him.”
“We all miss Charlie dearly on and off stage, and we’d love to dedicate this tour to Charlie. Here’s to you, Charlie!” she added.
Vats died on 24 August at the age of 80.
The Rolling Stones tweeted at the time, “Charlie was a cherished husband, father and grandfather and one of the greatest drummers of his generation as a member of the Rolling Stones.”
The Rolling Stones announced earlier in August that Watts would not join them on the No Filter Tour following a medical procedure.
The Rolling Stones will perform next Thursday in Charlotte, NC
