The Rolling Stones will close their No Filter tour next month with a newly announced performance at Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood on Tuesday, November 23, the venue announced this morning.
The indoor concert at the 7,000-seat Hard Rock will be an understatement for the largest rock band on the planet, as it will mark the Stones’ most intimate public performance in more than a decade, according to the Hard Rock press release. The Stones have been playing in front of a much larger crowd during the No Filter tour, which began with dates in Europe and the UK in 2017, but then fell victim to an unfortunate series of postponements on the North American stage.
An unspecified issue that required Mick Jagger to receive medical treatment delayed the North American performances in 2019, which were delayed for several months. A second set of dates was added to the calendar in early 2020, only to be interrupted by the pandemic before it began.
Coincidentally, the final pre-pandemic performance ended up being an August 2019 show at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens – the last show that drummer Charlie Watts would play with his longtime bandmates.
While fans of the famous British rock band have surely enjoyed seeing main members Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood, all in their 70s, back in action since the tour restarted last month, Watts’ absence has permeated the shows with a tinge of sadness. . Watts died in London on June 2 at the age of 80.
To replace Watts, the Stones have hired a drummer Steve Jordan, a veteran sideman who has played with dozens of rock teams over the years, including Eric Clapton, Stevie Nicks, and Bruce Springsteen, not to mention Keith Richards’ side hustle, the X-Pensive Wines.
To celebrate the announcement of next month’s concert, the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, which underwent a considerable $ 1.5 billion expansion and renovation before reopening in October 2019, will display the band’s iconic lip and tongue logo on its 450-foot guitar-shaped façade today (Thursday) from 8 p.m. to midnight.
The Stones returned to the stage last month with a private show in Foxborough, MA, followed by stops in St. Louis, Charlotte, Pittsburgh and Nashville. The tour resumes today with the first of two shows scheduled at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles. The band will perform at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa later this month.
