The Rolling Stones touch down at Hollywood Burbank Airport as their No Filter tour continues

The Rolling Stones touched down at Hollywood Burbank Airport on Monday ahead of their anticipated gigs at SoFi Stadium. 

The rock icons – Sir Mick Jagger, 78, Keith Richards, 77, and Ronnie Wood, 74 – looked in very high spirits as they prepared to continue the North American leg of their No Filter Tour.

Stepping off of the Delta aircraft, Mick’s flight attire was arguably most standout, as he donned a bold, mustard-hued suit.

Sir Mick recently said he finds it ‘strange’ performing without Charlie Watts, who passed away on August 24 at the age of 80.

The Rolling Stones kicked off their North American tour earlier this month, but the Sympathy for the Devil hitmaker admitted he and his bandmates are still not used to being on stage without the late drummer.

Mick told SiriusXM DJ Howard Stern: ‘Every time we get together now and rehearse, we say, “Oh, Charlie would say this, then he would do that.”

An official cause of death has not been revealed but he suffered from a series of health problems in recent years, including a diagnosis of throat cancer in 2004. 

‘We did so many shows with him and so many tours and so many recording sessions, it’s strange being without him. And he said, when he was sick, he said, “You’ve gotta just carry on and do this tour. Don’t stop because of me.” So we did.’

The Paint It Black singer also described Charlie as the ‘heartbeat’ of the group.

He said: ‘Charlie was the heartbeat for the band, and also a very steady personality. He was not to be perturbed. He was a very reliable person, wasn’t a diva — that’s the last thing you want in a drummer.’

And it’s not only on stage that Mick misses Charlie because they had a lot of other shared passions.  

He said: ‘I miss Charlie because he had a great sense of humour and we also were, outside of the band, we used to hang out quite a lot and have interesting times…

‘We liked sports, we’d go to football, we’d go to cricket games, and we had other interests apart from music.’
