While The Rolling Stones visited Los Angeles recently for a pair of shows, frontman Mick Jagger hit the town like a tourist and took photos along the way.

The Stones are currently traveling across the U.S. on their much-delayed “No Filter” tour. Like many other bands, the legendary rockers had to delay the American leg of their tour because of the COVID-19 pandemic. But Mick Jagger and the boys are back on the road as of their first stop in St. Louis on Sept. 26.

As the tour continues, The Rolling Stones played L.A.’s SoFi Stadium on Oct. 14 and 17. Throughout the band’s tour of the U.S., Mick Jagger has posted photos of himself enjoying each town. During their first tour stop, he posed in front of the St. Louis Arch. In Charlotte, N.C., he posed with a beer in the front of a popular dive bar. Additionally, while in Nashville, Tenn., Jagger shared various pics of him in nature and in front of Nissan Stadium.

While in L.A., he took in numerous locations as well. The famous singer came across a mural of his younger self above a mattress shop. He posed with the L.A. skyline in the background and with nature in another. He also came across his daughter Georgia May Jagger’s salon and tagged her in his post.

“Mattresses, murals and more around LA. @georgiamayjagger I spotted your salon!” Mick Jagger wrote on Instagram.

Mick Jagger’s daughter also responded to the post. Sounds like she wasn’t there at the time, but we’re sure the pair got together at another point while her dad was in town.

“Omg!!! Dada!! Haha missed you wish I could have been there,” she responded with a heart emoji.

Owner of Charlotte Dive Bar Roasts Customers Who Missed Mick Jagger

As mentioned before, while playing Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, Mick Jagger went out on the town. He stopped by a hole-in-the-wall bar that’s on the outskirts of uptown called the Thirsty Beaver Saloon. The old school, no frills dive bar is a tiny watering hole that’s been in the city for decades.

Yet it seems like the perfect place for one of rock ‘n’ roll’s biggest stars to walk in for a beer. Especially since he was able to go incognito the entire time as you can see from the photo. In fact, the bar’s owner Brian Wilson confirmed that no one realized Mick Jagger himself was hanging out at the saloon.

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

Wilson added that he went through the night’s credit card receipts to see if Jagger paid with a card. He hoped to snag his autograph, but he thinks he paid cash instead.

“I went through the credit card receipts to see if I had a Mick Jagger signature anywhere. That would have gone up on the wall,” he added, but no such luck.
