Sir Mick Jagger cherished getting “out in nature” on tour.
The Rolling Stones frontman has revealed he spent extra time outside throughout his downtime in between exhibits on the long-lasting rock ‘n’ roll group’s most up-to-date ‘No Filter Tour’ within the US, as an alternative of going to dive bars, because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
He shared: “Each city has one thing of nice curiosity, whether or not it’s an attractive park, or a beautiful image, or a museum that’s fascinating to you, or some odd factor that you just by no means considered.
“Local people tell me that that’s a popular dive bar when I get there. In normal times, I would go into the bar and spend time in there. But, you know, I didn’t want to do that because of COVID. So I just went outside.”
Among the locations the 78-12 months-previous singer visited and photographed final 12 months, was the Thirsty Beaver in Charlotte, North Carolina.
In an interview with The Washington Post, he continued: “Touring’s a pretty urban thing, so it’s nice to get out in nature and see a different perspective on things when you go to places like that. It’s wild. I went for some long hikes in some of these other places where I didn’t take any pictures.”
The ‘Satisfaction’ rocker added how bandmate Keith Richards, 78, “has a different approach to how he handles being on tour. I mean, he does occasionally go out to eat. But I think the COVID thing … people quite rightly got worried about what would happen if they ran into a crowd of people.”
