The Rolling Stones To Move Forward With US Tour After Charlie Watts' Death

When Charlie Watts passed away on Tuesday (August 24), it was unclear if The Rolling Stones still planned on embarking on their No Filter U.S. tour (Watts had already pulled out of the tour after undergoing emergency heart surgery earlier this month).
According to The Sun, the show will go on because Watts' bandmates believe that's what the drummer would have wanted. And they plan to honor him onstage.
“The band want to make the show a celebration of his life. He was like a brother to them but they know he would have hated the thought of them cancelling shows," a source told the outlet. “Charlie had given them his blessing to tour without him following his operation, so they will honour his wishes.”
The 13-date trek will see the Stones traverse the country, beginning in St. Louis on September 26 and wrapping up in Austin on November 20. The tour was supposed to take place last year but was postponed due to the pandemic. See a full list of dates below.
