The Rolling Stones No Filter Tour: Mick Jagger defies time with age defying gig

Music

The ageing rockers performed a second show at the London Stadium – formally the Olympic Stadium – belting out their biggest hits to 80,000 devoted fans.

Despite a seriously hefty price tag averaging around £120 per ticket, the venue was packed to the rafters – with just a handful of £240+ tickets remaining.

With a combined age of 294 you’d be forgiven for expecting the show to be a enjoyable yet bitter sweet trip down memory lane reminiscent of the bands hey-day.

However, Mick Jagger, 74, who became a Dad for the eighth time in 2016, proved yet again that age is just a number.

The music legend proved he’s still got the moves and showmanship which helped make the band a success decades ago

Chatting onstage, music icon Mick Jagger, said: “We’ve played over 200 shows in London so it’s nice that you still come to see us – thank you.”

While The Stones didn’t need to rely on any cheap pyrotechnic gimmicks or a hydraulic heavy moving stage, Mick still gave Beyoncé a run for her money when it came to his number of costume changes – all be it just a single bedazzled shirt at a time.

Admitting he sometimes doesn’t remember to switch up his costume, Mick said: “I’ve got a special shirt for this evening… usually I forget it though….I’m supposed to work it.”

Throughout their tour The Stones have been allowing fans to vote online for one of a song they want the band to perform that’s not on the standard set list.

Friday night’s track was 1971 track Dead Flowers.

Featuring on their ninth studio album Sticky Fingers, the song was never released as a single but still stood the test of time with fans.

Meanwhile, during a performance of Wild Horses support act for the night Florence Welch joined Mick on stage to belt out the global smash.

The Rolling Stones No Filter tour will continue in Southampton on May 29 before shows in Coventry, Manchester and Edinburgh.
