Mick Jagger, 78, larks about in playful snaps as he explores Brussels ahead of The Rolling Stones’ gig

He’s been touring Europe on The Rolling Stones’ SIXTY Tour.

And Mick Jagger appeared in great spirits as he explored the Belgian capital on Monday in a series of playful snaps posted to his Instagram page while sight-seeing in Brussels. 

The Rolling Stones frontman, 78, larked around and enjoyed a tipple before taking to the stage at the 50,000 seat King Baudouin Stadium.

The rocker posed alongside a bronze statue of the Belgian singer Jacques Brel where he pretended to steal the microphone to belt out a song.

The Brown Sugar hitmaker could also be seen enjoying a cocktail before taking in the sights, seemingly going unnoticed by other tourists.

Slipping his feet into comfy Adidas trainers, the musician donned a baseball cap while attempting to go incognito.

Immersing himself in the culture, the frontman posed against a wall honouring the late Belgian author and Tin Tin creator, Hergé.

Later he grabbed a snap of himself next to one of the city’s famous bendy buses – as well as a large pile of rubbish.

He captioned the snaps: ‘Had a great time exploring Brussels, looking forward to seeing you tonight at King Baudouin!’

The band returned triumphantly to the stage in Amsterdam last week after postponing the show for a month.

The delay was as a result of Mick testing positive for COVID-19.

Last month, the rocker shared an update insisting he was ‘feeling much better’, and thanked his fans for their well wishes.

‘I’m feeling much better and can’t wait to get back on stage next week! The Amsterdam date has been rescheduled for July 7 and we’ll have news of the new Bern date ASAP.

The rockers were last week forced to postpone their Amsterdam concert at the Johan Cruijff Arena, hours before it was set to start after the legendary frontman came down with coronavirus.

Then, the band announced they would no longer play Wankdorf Stadium in Switzerland as planned.

In an update on social media, they said: ‘The Rolling Stones are deeply sorry for this postponement, but the safety of the audience, fellow musicians and the touring crew has to take priority.’
