How Does This Keep Happening? Mick Jagger Hits Nashville’s Broadway and Goes Unrecognized

It’s weird that the good people of Metropolis can’t work out that Clark Kent is just Superman with glasses. But that is way more believable than Mick Jagger — one of the world’s most recognizable rock gods — walking among us with only a hat as a disguise. But somehow, he keeps doing it.

The Rolling Stones recently stopped in Nashville as part of the band’s No Filter tour. But before Saturday’s show, Mick Jagger walked around Music City completely unnoticed. How?

He posted a video on Twitter to prove it.

Now, you’re going to say this one isn’t as egregious as his most recent stop in Charlotte where he stood outside of a popular local bar and had a beer because this time he’s wearing a mask.

But he pulls down the mask in front of people and takes it off completely at the end of the video and remains unnoticed. And Jagger claims he did a lot more this time.

“I had a good time last night,” the band’s 78-year-old, “Street Fighting Man” singer told the sold-out crowd.

“I went to Printers Alley and sang ‘Honky Tonk Women’ in a karaoke bar. (And) I crashed a bachelorette party on a pedal tavern. They loved my Goo Goo Clusters. We all ended up at the Wild Beaver riding a mechanical bull.”

He’s clearly joking there and having fun with people that made such a big deal out of him grabbing a beer ahead of his stadium show last month. At least, I think he’s joking. Mick Jagger does what he wants, so anything’s possible.

But he did tweet photos of himself walking around Nashville and taking in several sights in the middle of the day, as well.

The Rolling Stones visit Los Angeles for two shows this week. So if you’re in a dive bar and see a guy in a hat, ask him about his level of satisfaction.

Owner of Charlotte Bar Roasts Customers Who Missed Mick Jagger

Mick Jagger melted minds when he posted a photo last month of himself standing outside of the Thirsty Beaver Saloon in Charlotte. There are people on either side of him having normal conversations about their normal lives, as the most unnormal thing is happening a few feet away.

I happen to live in Charlotte and have been to the Thirsty Beaver a handful of times. It’s great, but it’s tiny. It’s a phone booth with booze. So, for Jagger to go unnoticed there is especially ridiculous.

The owner of the Thirsty Beaver believes so too. Many of the people in Jagger’s photo are regulars at his bar, and some of them had tickets to see the band perform the next night.

“Oh no, we’re making fun of them.” the Beaver’s owner Brian Wilson said. “They’ll pay $400 for a ticket on the floor, but they don’t recognize Mick Jagger when he walks in the door.”

Wilson said he wasn’t there for the rock star’s visit, and it seems Jagger paid cash for the beer. Wilson looked through the credit card receipts hoping to score the rock star’s autograph but no luck.
