Mick Jagger visited a bar—and no one knew who he was

Legendary Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger made a pit stop into a dive bar—but not one person seemed to recognise him.

Jagger visited the Thirsty Beaver Saloon in Charlotte, North Carolina, for a quick drink. Although he is a world-renowned artist, he somehow managed to go under the radar with staff and fellow patrons.

In conversation with CNN, the bar’s co-owner Brian Wilson said that he didn’t arrive at the bar until Jagger had already left.

“Nobody really mentioned that anybody famous had been here - so, don’t think they noticed. But this morning, my phone did!” Wilson told the outlet.

He’s really not in the wrong because Jagger shared a picture of himself at the bar drinking a beer with the caption: “Out and about last night in Charlotte, NC.”

One Twitter user said: “How weird to have a picture of Mick Jagger, and NO ONE is looking at @MickJagger. Not one side glance, no over-the-shoulder spying, no sneaking phone pictures, no peeking through windows. So weird to experience Mick Jagger in obscurity.”

Someone else also believed that the photo was the perfect picture for an album and wrote, “I get a beer, it looks like a guy getting a beer.

“Mick Jagger gets a beer; it looks like a classic rock album cover.”

According to Wilson, some of the other patrons who were visiting the bar at the same time as Jagger had tickets to see the Rolling Stones concert.

According to Wilson, some of his other customers who were present at the same time as Jagger had tickets to see the Rolling Stones concert.

“Upwards of $400 to go to the show and get as close as they could to Mick. And if they had only turned around, they’d have been as close as they’re ever going to get,” Wilson said.

Jagger is currently in the midst of the No Filter tour with the rest of the Stones bandmates, their first since drummer Charlie Watts died in August.
