The Rolling Stones have played their first ever show without Charlie Watts in a warm-up gig for the upcoming remaining dates on the No Filter tour.

The show was a private concert for Patriots owner Robert Kraft and his family. It was the first show to feature Steve Jordan on drums.

The show had a few threats. The Stones played the rarity from the upcoming ‘Tattoo You’ expanded edition ‘Trouble’s A-Coming’ for the very first time.

Another first was the live debut of the 2020 new Stones song ‘Living In A Ghost Town’.

The 1966 classic ‘19th Nervous Breakdown’ was also played live for the first time since 2005.

The No Filter tour began in Hamburg, Germany on 9 September 2017. The tour came to a halt after the Miami show on 30 August 2019 but will officially resume in 26 September 2021 in St Louis.


The warm-up show for the Kraft family was at Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, MA.

The setlist was:

Let’s Spend the Night Together (from Between The Buttons, 1965)
Tumbling Dice (from Exile On main Street, 1972)
Under My Thumb (from Aftermath, 1966)
Trouble’s a Coming (from Tattoo You expanded box, 2021)

You Can’t Always Get What You Want (from Let It Bleed, 1969)
