Sir Mick Jagger enjoyed nature hikes on No Filter tour – Music News


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.”
