Charlie Watts To Sit Out The Rolling Stones Tour

The Rolling Stones legendary drummer Charlie Watts looks like he won’t be participating in the upcoming North American tour.

UPDATE:

Ron Wood confirms Charlie Watts is not on the upcoming Stones tour

I will miss Charlie on our upcoming tour, but he told me the show must go on! I’m really looking forward to Charlie getting back on stage with us as soon as he’s fully recovered. A huge thank you to the band’s old friend Steve Jordan for rockin’ on in Charlie’s place, and on his drum seat for the Autumn tour.

And Mick has now said:

We really look forward to welcoming Charlie back as soon as he is fully recovered.
Thank you to our friend Steve Jordan for stepping in, so we can still play all the shows for you this fall.

Various reports out of the US are talking about a Charlie no-show for the tour. Charlie has recently undergone “a procedure” and will not be well enough for the tour.

Peter Frampton tweeted today:

Sending all love and strength to #CharlieWatts. He’s recovering from emergency surgery but doing fine. He will not be playing on the Stones upcoming tour.

Watts turned 80 in June. While the operation was a success, Charlie’s doctor wants him to talk time off to recuperate.

Steve Jordan, who has been a member of Keith Richards’ solo band the X-Pensive Winos, will fill in for Watts.
