THE Rolling Stones will pay a touching tribute to their late bandmate Charlie Watts when they return to the road next weekend by altering their world-famous logo.
I can reveal the group will turn their iconic tongue symbol from red to black in memory of the musician, who passed away last month.
As well as being projected on to big screens, the new design is to be used on merchandise and around tour visuals.
Sir Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood have also agreed to display a moving montage of footage showing Charlie during their shows.
A source said: “They don’t want it to be a concert that is a downer because they know fans have paid good money to see them.
“But it feels only right that they referenced Charlie’s passing because he was such a vital part of the band and it will be strange for them all to not have him there.
“They think the plans make for a fitting tribute.”
His bandmates were last week unable to attend Charlie’s private funeral in Devon due to Covid restrictions.
Their rescheduled No Filter US tour starts on September 26 in St Louis, Missouri.
Get ready for an emotional evening.
