Mick Jagger doing some sight seeing while in town this weekend.
By - Imhighdrunkorpooping
I work at the Zoo, will be keeping an eye out of for this outfit today
Oi all deez Puffins are crazy! *bobs head*
Start mo up
He should get the same treatment every other band in STL gets.
So they should get all their equipment stolen and cars broken into?
Does even count as a concert in STL if that doesn’t happen??
Nothing quite like the St. Louis Welcoming Party.
Told that all he has to do is say the fans in STL are better than the ones in Chicago?
When travelling to Columbia Mo back in 1994 thought that this would be the last time I'd get a chance to see the legends perform live after missing the Steel Wheelchair tour in 89, and here we are.
Had no desire to go to that concert but I listened to it from my dorm that was right across the street from Faurot
I was inside the snake for that show. I expect you heard it well enough, but it honestly was a pretty darn good show. One of the best I've ever worked and I've worked a LOT of shows. It was I think to Columbia's permanent shame that it didn't sell out.
Nice of him to go sightseeing instead of just holing up in the hotel until showtime
Wonder if he's checked out the Zoo, the Art Museum or the History Museum's current exhibit on St. Louis' musical heritage?
hey look, there's the arch
That's a pro-level "I'm not Mick Jagger" outfit right there.
I just love that we have the Arch so much
What an amazing feat of engineering and a crown jewel for our city
100% agreed. Whenever I'm at pickles deli I HAVE to do the walk around after. My favorite spot in the entire state.
I thought they closed so that hotel could go in?
say what now
Went ahead and deleted it since a bunch of people don't get the joke. Like once a week or two we get posts/comments about how it's all built on torn out parts of downtown to get rid of all the black people and shit. That we called them bad areas with bad old buildings solely because of the people living there
ah, i see. just got on this sub yesterday.
Feel free to read the gateway arch by tracy campbell. It's a good overview of said topic.
I think we're going to need a bigger arch.
Yeah. That's the reason they built the Arch. Right. Got it.
It is what happened, though. Read "The Gateway Arch: A Biography".
Yeah. "How can we move them black folks outta the area? I know. Let's build a big ol' Arch monument! That'll get rid of 'em!"
Dude educate yourself. It wasn't for the arch monument. The monument was undetermined when it was proposed. The idea was to increase property values by limiting property. How else to increase property values? Eliminate the housing of the "undesirables". Read and learn before you talk out of your ass.
It was awesome seeing it in the Marvel animated series "What If...?" How it was shown in that series was amusing.
Is the concert at the old Battlehawks stadium?
He looks like every other old dude in the city. I wonder how hard or easy it is for him to just roam around like this.
Very hard, especially in a city like STL where classic rock is like country music, and Jagger is like, one of the most famous still living rock musicians. Chances are he's not just walking around for this photo, we just don't see the security team and escort group.
Not as hard as you would think. (I worked in the entertainment field for years.)
If he moves around with an entourage, some may pick up on that. If it's just him and another guy, and they don't make a scene, act normal, and don't dress out of place, you'd be surprised how many people wouldn't think twice cause they don't expect Mick Jagger to be where they are.
Sure. If he has a huge security detail he’d be easily noticeable. But if this was just some dude with his head down walking down the sidewalk alone, I bet at best he’d get a ‘that guy kind of looks like Jagger’ thought from a maybe a couple people. His hat, clothes, and shoe choices might as well be the digicamo of old people world.
Thanks to Covid, he could also just wear a face mask and put on some sunglasses and he'd be well disguised. Except when he talks although maybe he can fake an American accent.
Hope he has better luck there than that Blue's prospect
Oof, came here to say this.
He's older than the Arch, and I'm convinced he'll outlive us all. The end of the world will just be Mick Jagger and cockroaches.
That’s crazy that he’s already here. Concert is Sunday.
He's gotta get his toasted rav on.
Maybe Mick, Keith and the rest of the band will try some Ted Drewes' Frozen Custard and some Gooey Butter Cake.
Plus this being the kickoff to the whole tour I'm sure there is a lot going on.
This. They have to get used to the new setup, new stage equipment, new everything. First show for them, only show for a lot of the fans. Need to come out as close to 100%…
I had no idea we were the first stop. Aren’t we exciting!
I’ll be there on Sunday. Been looking forward to it since Feb of 2019 when I bought the tickets.
I was going to go but Megadeth scheduled their show the same day.
I heard they've been here since Sun
I heard Tuesday.
Gotta get that Imo’s.
Maybe he genuinely likes it here.
Got him confused with Steven Tyler...in the Simpson’s Episode....but since I’m typing about it, I wonder if Tyler has ever said “Hello, Springfield!” When he’s performing in STL?
Asking the important questions. Where muh flaming moe...
Like he hasn't seen it before. He was in his late 50s when it was finished.
I hear the best part of this tour is going to be when they all smash their walkers at the end of the show.
Actually more like in his mid-twenties.
> He was in his late 50s when it was finished.
The arch? You're high.
I am, but its still sarcasm. Many have figured it out. Seems you haven't.
Count me in as one who didn't figure it out.
Yeah uhm no
*its sarcasm bud*
Then try to make it believable.
So you don't know how sarcasm works.. got it
People getting all mad when he was seriously already 22 when it was completed lol.
The Stones are one of the greatest rock 'n roll bands in history and Mick Jagger is a living legend but dude is *old*.
Look at that outfit, str8 grandpa-mode.
I hope he can get some satisfaction in STL!
i am guessing he has bodyguards
They can get got too 😉
Can't wait to see them next weekend in TN.
Couldn't get tickets to Sunday, had to look around.
There's a shit ton of tickets for Sunday.
Not where I want to sit there aren't. LOL. I'm a concert snob. Haha.
There's row 1 floor C on Ticketmaster for like $474.
Yeah, also not paying that. STL concert prices are stupid. I got great seats in TN for just over $100.
I almost wanna say that he's trying to blend in and not be noticed. But he's wearing purple pants .....
I bet he wants to… paint it black.
Look! There's the Stone!
This is one of the few pictures of it that actually showcases just how tall the Arch is
…Let’s rob this dude
Oh holy shit. It may’ve been someone else but I’m fairly sure I called Jagger a *half dead Mick Jagger looking douchebag* because we passed this SUV and he had like resting bitch face but kind of perked a little bit I guess because of the weird ranting glaring broad (me) and I felt really bad that maybe I’d just insulted this poor old guy dozing off if he’d read my lips. It hadn’t occurred to me that it might actually *be* Jagger. 🤣
Edit: for what it’s worth, my partner was like “Jesus, what’s up your grumpy ass today? You hungry or something?” And yeah, I was.
I sure hope he doesn't get murdered!
He looks like someone’s dad.
Edit: I know he has kids. I’m just saying he doesn’t stand out very much.
Or at this point in his life, someone's grand-dad.
I hope he brought a few ringer wallets.
Let’s say a guy pulls a knife on you to mug you. What do you do? You go fumbling for your wallet. And you go fumbling for your wallet. Well, in that split-second, that’s when he’s going to stab you. So here’s what you do. You kids get yourselves a money clip. Okay, you can get these at any haberdashery. You put a $50 bill in the money clip then when a guy flashes a blade, you go, ‘You want my money, go get it!’ Then you run the other direction.
Mick Jagger is On Fire For ~~Her~~ The Arch.
I can't believe they are still trying to make it at their age.
Give it up, boys, this whole music thing isn't going to happen for you!
He’d seem so much cooler with arch flair.
Why do you hate the arch?
I don’t. But I do hate your pointless flair and your need to constantly comment about it.
The flair venerates the mighty arch! Show some respect.
I think I have those same pants
Bodygaurds galore. What set you from playa!?
Where is everybody else is usually a bunch of people around the arch
I wanted to make a joke about Mick Jagger getting robbed on the Arch grounds, but I couldn’t think of it. Help appreciated.
Which person in the picture is Mick Jagger? I didn't really grow up with him, so I don't know what some of these aging stars look like.
