The Rolling Stones are resuming their “No Filter” tour to pay tribute to Charlie Watts.

Following the cancellation of COVID-19 and the death of their drummer, Charlie Watts, the Rolling Stones have continued their No Filter tour.

After postponing gigs in 2020 because to the epidemic, the rock band performed Sunday at the Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis.

Watts, who died in August, was honored by the Rolling Stones. The event began with a drumming and an empty stage, with photographs of Watts flashing on a video board.

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Ronnie Wood of the Rolling Stones came to the front of the stage to commemorate Watts after singing “It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll (But I Like It).”

“I just want to say that seeing those photographs of Charlie up on the television is pretty emotional,” Jagger added. “This is the first time we’ve done a tour without him.”

“We all mourn Charlie terribly, both on and off stage, and we’d like to dedicate this tour to him. Charlie, here’s to you!” Added he.

The Rolling Stones (@therollingstones) shared a post.

Watts died on August 24th, at the age of 80.

The Rolling Stones tweeted at the time, “Charlie was a cherished husband, father, and grandfather, as well as one of the best drummers of his generation as a member of the Rolling Stones.”

Watts has previously stated that he would not be joining the Rolling Stones on their No Filter tour due to a medical procedure.

The Rolling Stones are scheduled to perform in Charlotte, North Carolina on Thursday.
