Rock Legend Popped Into A Bar For A Beer And No One Recognised Him

Mick Jagger nipped into a bar while on tour - and was somehow was not recognised by a single person.

The Rolling Stones frontman popped into the Thirsty Beaver Saloon in Charlotte, North Carolina, for a quick drink, but despite being mega-famous he managed to go completely unnoticed by staff and other customers.

The bar's co-owner Brian Wilson told CNN he hadn't turned up to the bar until after Jagger had left.

He told the news outlet: "Nobody really mentioned that anybody famous had been here - so, don't think they noticed.

"But this morning my phone did!"

And he's not wrong, because last night Jagger shared a snap of himself at the bar knocking back a beer alongside the caption: "Out and about last night in Charlotte."

Of course, it wasn't long before social media users reacted to the fact he wasn't attracting any attention from others - with one person writing: "And. Nobody. Recognised. Him."

Someone else shared a close-up photo of some other patrons of the bar, writing: "Turn around. Mick Jagger is having a beer behind you."

A third person said: "Mick's hanging out just like a local, this guy is the best!"

While another couldn't quite wrap their head around the fact he wasn't noticed - commenting: "There is NO WAY I wouldn't recognise you if I saw you at the bar! However, I probably wouldn't talk to you because I'd be unconscious on the floor."

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.

He added: "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."

Elsewhere, Charlotte residents were a bit more on the ball - and Jagger was spotted having something to eat in the private dining room of a restaurant called La Belle Helene.

Jagger is currently embarking upon the No Filter tour with the rest of the band, who sadly lost drummer Charlie Watts in August.

The singer paid a touching tribute to Watts on the second night of the tour, which was their first gig without him.
