Rock legend Mick Jagger took a pit stop at a North Carolina bar on Wednesday night while on his tour – and was not recognized by the patrons or the staff.
Jagger, 78, the singer of the iconic British rock band The Rolling Stones, went unnoticed at the Thirsty Beaver Saloon in Charlotte.
The singer was on the No Filter tour with the rest of the band who had recently lost drummer Charlie Watts on August 24 after the 81 year-old died of throat cancer.
He was reportedly dressed like a local as he sported a ball cap and jeans while drinking a beer that was disputed to either be a Miller Lite or Michelob Ultra.
‘Out and about last night in Charlotte’, Jagger wrote in the caption he posted of himself as he stood at an outside table of the bar, unnoticed and unbothered by the other patrons.
‘And. Nobody. Recognized. Him’, Mike McCombs jokingly tweeted in response.

The Thirsty Beaver Saloon is considered to be one of the most famous dive bars, which first opened in 2008, and quickly attracted a loyal core of fans.
Its owner Brian Wilson was asked several questions about Jagger’s appearance after his post blew up on social media.
‘Everybody’s used to it being an eclectic place,’ Wilson told The Charlotte Observer.
Wilson was not there as the same time as Jagger as he left at around 10pm to put his daughter to bed.
He continued to tell the Observer that one of the patrons only saw Jagger briefly as he came in and out.
The other patrons, even the ones in the photo, and the bartender also did not think to recognize Jagger.

He added that another British rock legend Eric Clapton also appeared at another famous Charlotte venue called the Double Door Inn before it closed in 2016.
‘And we got Mick Jagger, so I think we did all right,’ Wilson said.
Twitter users were ecstatic over Jagger’s brief Charlotte appearance.
‘Mick’s hanging out just like a local, this guy is the best!!,’ Marvin Sloan tweeted.
‘There is NO WAY I wouldn’t recognize you if I saw you at the bar! However, I probably wouldn’t talk to you because I’d be unconscious on the floor,’ Vote Blue said.
‘A man of health and taste,’ Tom Sorenson added.
