Rolling Stones WILL go ahead with US tour and pay tribute to late Charlie Watts

THE Rolling Stones plan to pay an emotional tribute to late drummer Charlie Watts on next month’s tour.

The group have been devastated by 80-year-old Charlie’s death on Tuesday but insist he would have wanted them to continue their US tour.

Mick Jagger, 78, Keith Richards, 77, and Ronnie Wood, 74, are due to resume their No Filter Tour in St Louis, Missouri, on September 26.

Charlie had already pulled out of the tour following a medical procedure this month.

A music insider said: “The band want to make the show a celebration of his life.

"He was like a brother to them but they know he would have hated the thought of them cancelling shows.

“Charlie had given them his blessing to tour without him following his operation, so they will honour his wishes.”
