Mick Jagger and Keith Richards on the final night of the Rolling Stones’ 2021 tour

Two months after it began, the Rolling Stones have closed their 2021 No Filter tour. However, unlike the other concerts, which were held in stadiums, the performance on Tuesday night (Nov. 23) was for a more intimate (and well-heeled) audience. The 17-song concert at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla., took place three days after their Nov. 20 performance in Austin, Tex., that was originally planned to be the final show of their 2021 run. The original Oct. 15 announcement described the concert as the Stones’ “most intimate show in more than a decade.”

Tickets for the 7,000 seat venue began at $281 (yes, those are the “cheap seats”). They scaled upwards to $456, $556 and $781, before topping out at $1006. (That’s face value; ticket sellers were asking over $10,000 for some seats on the re-sale market.) Seats went on sale Oct. 18 and quickly sold-out.

The Stones’ last performance of the previous tour was at Hard Rock Stadium near Miami on Aug. 30, 2019. That concert, which ended the 2019 edition of their No Filter tour, proved to be their final show with Charlie Watts. As with the other shows on the 2021 edition, the Stones dedicated the final concert to Watts.

The casino show served as a bookend of sorts for the band’s 2021 tour. Prior to the Sept. 26 opener in St. Louis, they played a private concert at Gillette Stadium in Massachusetts for roughly 300 people. The cost of that show was paid for by New England Patriots’ owner Robert Kraft.

As was customary on this tour, a brief video tribute was paid to Watts, just before the Stones started their set with “Street Fighting Man.”

The set continued with another favorite from their ’60s catalog.

Thanks to Fake Fan (nice seats!) and others for the videos.

Jagger said before the tour began that he expects the Stones to hit the stage in 2022 for their 60th anniversary. One would imagine that they’ll need to first put some separation from the heartbreak and loss they suffered before they can even address their future.

    It is fact now that Mick sings better than the old croaker McCartney. Ringo too!

      That may be true Jerry. But it’s unfortunate that, while Mick is probably the all-time greatest rock and roll singer, who can effectively take his voice in so many varied directions, he primarily just ends up yelling the songs out at the Stones shows. It would be great if he attempted to actually capture the tone of his vocals on the original recordings. Listen to the original of “Satisfaction” if you don’t know what I mean.

      Secondly, while it’s true that Dear Paulie has, sadly, finally lost a good deal of his vocal chops, plus gained a warble, you have to realize that he fell from such a great vocal height, that he was able to maintain for so remarkably long. And while Jagger may have been the all-time greatest rock and roll singer, there’s really nobody who could sing anything like Paulie did, in his prime. He was the best overall singer of our generation, period!

    The simple fact that these men who are at this point in their lives, the “Winter” of their lives, who are financial set for 20 lifetimes probably, still wish to do this work, is such a blessing.

    Voices/ skills/health (both mental & physical), and so many other factors could have destroyed these men, (RIP Charlie/Ian Stewart/Brian Jones); to this date, they carry on. 60 years for The Rolling Stones will happen, God-willing, in 2022.

    Many other artists in different genres of music have worked until late in their lives. Tony Bennett, B.B. King…etc.

    The Rolling Stones, (bless them all), have continued to perform, write music and give the world what they have in their hearts.

    Thank you to all of them, past and present.
