The Rolling Stones played their first tour date without drummer Charlie Watts in St. Louis.
They kicked off their No Filter tour at The Dome at America’s Center.
This also marks the band’s first time on the road since last year’s postponement due to COVID. Steve Jordan is filling in Watts’ seat behind the drum kit, who is a friend of the band and received a blessing from Watts himself to play.

The beginning of the show was a heartfelt tribute to the iconic drummer, and when the band bowed at the close, a picture of Watts appeared behind them.
The band upped the ante from the beginning of the performance, playing “Street Fighting Man” and “It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll (But I Like It),” and even played the 2020 single “Living In A Ghost Town.”
The Stones will stop in 12 cities to play 13 shows across the U.S. Fans can purchase tickets on the band’s website.
