The Rolling Stones 2021 Tour Announcement – No Filter Tour Schedule
The Rolling Stones have finally set out on their No Filter tour, which kicked off on September 26th. The rock and roll legends will visit 12 cities before ending their engagement on November 20th in Austin, TX.
The British group initially planned to tour in 2020 before the pandemic took hold and announced rescheduled dates in summer 2021. Fans were thrilled to finally see Mick Jagger and his bandmates in person as live music slowly returned, until devastating news rocked the world of Rolling Stones supporters around the world.
On August 24th, Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts passed away at the age of 80. He had been with the group since their formation nearly six decades ago. He was one of only three members (including Jagger and Keith Richards) to perform on every one of the band’s thirty studio albums. While Watts’s bandmates and loving fans mourned his death, they ultimately decided that the show must go on.
Of course, Watts’s presence is still very much alive in the Rolling Stones fandom. On the second date of the No Filter tour in St. Louis, the band held a tribute to the late drummer that included illuminated images, an emotional speech from Mick Jagger, and a drum solo from the Rolling Stones hit “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking.”
These emotions will likely continue throughout the rest of the tour, as the band plays Rolling Stones classics like “Satisfaction,” “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” “Start Me Up,” “Gimme Shelter,” and many more. Watts has an unforgettable legacy as the drummer of one of the greatest rock and roll bands of all time, and there’s no better time to remember this fact than at a Rolling Stones concert.
From Mick Jagger’s dance moves that inspired a Maroon 5 song to Keith Richard’s legendary guitar skills, the Rolling Stones are simply iconic. They started at the forefront of the British Invasion back in the 1960s and are still touring together as musicians and friends decades later! Rolling Stone even called them “the most definitional band that rock & roll has produced,” and it’s not an exaggeration.
If there is anything we’ve learned from both the pandemic and the tragic death of Charlie Watts, it’s that nothing in life is guaranteed. You need to indulge in life’s pleasures while you can, and there are very few things as joyful as watching the greatest rock and roll band of all time live on stage. Jagger and Richards are both in their late 70s, yet still, rock as hard as they did a half-century ago.
