Mick Jagger in St Louis

Myself, being a fan of Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones, I was shocked to have learned last year that he was coming to St Louis, MO, to kick off his world tour. I have been a fan since my late teens, especially after that controversial song ‘She Was Hot’ was banned from the airwaves, or so I thought.

In the photo from Twitter he seen at the St Louis Gateway Arch, letting everyone know where he was for the kick off. I had a coffee break and was thinking of taking a walk down by the Arch.

However, I’d got distracted and missed the opportunity to grab a peep at the man himself. There are no tickets for me, and since covid-19, I don’t want to be around any crowd. And I am sure the crowd will be rocking, especially the fans where the band won’t be visiting.

A note from Fox 2 news in St Louis:

The stage at the Dome at America’s Center is set for the Stones concert. That concert launches their 13-date tour. It will be the band’s first St. Louis show since 2006 when they performed at the Savvis Center, now known as Enterprise Center.

The band’s “No Filter Tour 2020” was going to include a June 2020 show at the Dome at America’s Center, but because of the pandemic, they had to take an unscheduled break and relaunch the tour. After the unscheduled break, the tour relaunches this weekend at the Dome at America’s Center.

The rumors confirmed:

The Rolling Stones to Embark on 2021 Tour as Planned in Wake of Charlie Watts’ Death. The Rolling Stones will not postpone or cancel their upcoming No Filter tour in the wake of drummer Charlie Watts’ death, Rolling Stone reports and a representative for the band confirmed to Pitchfork

About the legendary Mick Jagger:

Sir Michael Philip Jagger is an English singer, songwriter, actor, and film producer who has achieved international fame as the lead vocalist and one of the founder members of the Rolling Stones. His songwriting partnership with Keith Richards remains one of the most successful in history.

The Rolling Stones are an English rock band formed in London in 1962. Active for almost six decades, they are one of the most popular and enduring bands of the rock era. Diverging from the pop rock of the early 1960s, the Rolling Stones pioneered the gritty, heavier-driven sound that came to define hard rock.
