Mick Jagger and Keith Richards lead tributes to Charlie Watts

Anfield could be used more with Mo Salah’s defenders with his nimble feet.

But in front of a beloved Kop, Mick Jagger is equally majestic – as he dedicates this performance to late drummer Charlie Watts.

For a two-year-old man in his 80s, it was a complete sight.

A hip-butt here, a butt-twist there… no one has quite the same movements as Jagger.

And 50,000 spectators cheered a string of hits including Start Me Up, Honky Tonk Women and Street Fighting Man.

The performance marked the band’s first time performing on British soil since Charlie’s death.

“In 1963, we met a drummer named Charlie Watts.

“This is the first show we’ve done in the UK without him. We want to dedicate this performance to Charlie. ”

Anfield broke out at an encore with (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction. Is the crowd satisfied? You bet.

And Mick Jagger is clearly a bit nostalgic as he hugs a statue of Cilla Black in Liverpool.

The veteran singer was with the Rolling Stones for their first concert in the city in 51 years.

And he did a tour of the sights, at one point clinging to a statue of Scouse legend Cilla, who died aged 72 in 2015. The band last night played at the Stadium Liverpool’s Anfield, their first UK concert since the death of drummer Charlie Watts.

Mick, 78, also visited the Empire Theatre, where the Stones last performed in Liverpool in 1971 – and guitarist Keith Richards dropped two bottles of Jack Daniels on stage.

He posted the snaps to Instagram on Wednesday and wrote: “It’s been so long since I’ve been in Liverpool. Looking forward to going to Anfield tomorrow night.”

In another split second, Mick can be seen standing next to the Canada Avenue sign. Behind him is the Gan Building. He also visited the nearby Liverpool Museum.

The Liverpool show was the third of the band’s summer tour of Europe Sixty.

Despite being an avid Arsenal fan, Mick invited Liverpool players and manager Jurgen Klopp to attend the concert.

The Stones will also perform two nights in London as part of the Hyde Park collection. It’s been 60 years since their first gig at the Marquee Club in London’s West End.

Watts, who passed away last August at the age of 80, has been replaced by Steve Jordan.
