The legendary, iconic, renowned Rolling rocks Leader Mick jagger I hung out at a dive bar in Charlotte, North Carolina last night (September 29), surrounded by Stones fans, and it went completely unnoticed.
This is not a joke.
Earlier today, Jagger posted a photo of himself leaning against a high table sipping a drink. “Last night in Charlotte, North Carolina,” he wrote.
Local Charlotte reporter Joe Bruno tweeted the same photo, noting that the lead singer was at a bar called Thirsty Beaver Saloon. The rest of the people in the photo seem completely busy otherwise, and although it can be argued that they were posing casually because they knew the photo was being taken or that they were simply trying not to draw attention to the singer, the co-owner of the bar. has confirmed that they did not actually know he was there.
The best part is that the people to the right of Jagger in the picture had floor seats for the Rolling Stones concert tonight at Bank of America Stadium.
“Thirsty Beaver co-owner Brian Wilson tells me Mick Jagger went unnoticed last night,” Bruno wrote in the tweet. “Turns out the people to his right in this photo have tickets to tonight’s show and they didn’t even realize it was him!”
Interestingly, a Twitter account called CLT Updates wrote today: “Last night a group of Thirsty Beaver friends got caught up in a heated debate about whether any guy looked like Mick Jagger.”
Another local writer named Jeremy Markovich did some more research on the situation and also spoke with the co-owner of the Thirsty Beaver Saloon.
“Brian’s been doing them all morning because those guys, the regulars, have tickets to tonight’s concert. ‘They’ll pay $ 400 for a ticket on the floor,’ Brian says,” but they don’t recognize Mick Jagger when he walks in. the door. Those guys haven’t contacted me yet. They may feel terribly embarrassed. Or, you know, they could have day jobs, “Markovich wrote in a blog post.
The bartender, who is young, apparently also did not recognize the Stones leader, according to Wilson. But to be fair, the rocker apparently used cash during his transaction, because there are no receipts that have his name on it for the night.
