Mick Jagger shed light on his classic Instagram posts featuring him out and about in the U.S. during the Rolling Stones' recent "No Filter" tour. The legendary frontman posted shots of himself throughout the recent leg at the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, checking out the wildlife in Tennessee, drinking a beer at Charlotte's Thirsty Beaver Saloon, and chilling out on the beach in Miami.
Jagger told The Washington Post, "I take one security guy or maybe two. And one of the guys — one of the musicians, maybe — and we go out and explore. We walked the strip in Nashville. I’m wearing a mask and a hat and so I (am not recognized). It’s crazy. But most of the places I go aren't super crowded."
He went on to explain that posting about his off-night and post-gig activities really is nothing new: "When I started, I did it in our previous tours. But now, social media has become more popular. People didn’t take quite as much notice as they do now. And when I stopped, when I did it from that bar, y'know, the Beaver bar. some people took a lot of notice and I thought, well, actually, this is kind of fun."
