Rolling Stones rock the house as they wrap up No Filter Tour with powerful show in Florida

Nearly two years after it kicked off in Hamburg, Germany, the Rolling Stones wrapped up their No Filter Tour with a show in Miami Gardens, Florida on Friday. 

As a precaution, the show had to be moved up one day due to the threat of Hurricane Dorian.

In the end, Mick, Keith, Charlie, and Ronnie were said to have been in rare form when they hit the stage to play their bevy of hits like Start Me Up, Honky Tonk Woman and You Can’t Always Get What You Want.

With the energy of someone half his age, Mick Jagger owed the large stage as he danced and prowled the large stage with his signature voice and seemingly endless charisma.

They opened with their classics Jumping Jack Flash and It’s Only Rock And Roll (But I Like It). 

In all the tore through 20 songs, ending with an Encore of Gimme Shelter and (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.

The first leg of the tour started way back in September 9, 2017, with two shows in Germany and ended in France at the end of October of that year.

The English rockers remained in Europe for the second leg from May into July.

The tour was rolling along on its way to becoming one of the most commercially successful concert tours of 2017 and 2018.

But then, in March of this year, fans got the shocking news that the North American leg, consisting of 17 shows, had to be postponed because Jagger had to undergo heart valve replacement surgery in April.

The legendary frontman, 76, promised the band would be back to make up all the dates after he recovered.

And in the end he and the guys lived up to that promise.  

The Rolling Stones have now been together since 1962, which translates to 57 years.
