THE CONCERT'S PURPOSE

The concert, curated by Lady Gaga and organized by Global Citizen, raised much-needed funds in support of health care workers. With educational portions in between performances, the event also aimed at raising awareness amid the pandemic.

The concert also saw terrific performances by artists including Lizzo, Stevie Wonder, Paul McCartney, and Jennifer Lopez, among others.

"At this critical moment in history, Global Citizen is also calling on individuals, governments, and philanthropists to join and support immediate COVID-19 response efforts," Global Citizen said in a statement.

For their performance, Mick Jagger, Charlie Watts, Keith Richards, and Ronnie Wood came together via the Zoom application for a brilliant rendition of their 1969 classic, "You Can't Always Get What You Want."

Charlie Watts humorously demonstrated his air drum skills in the absence of a drum kit, while Ronnie, Keith, and Mick played their guitars from their respective living rooms during the riveting performance.

'NO FILTER' AND REPEATED POSTPONEMENTS

The Rolling Stones was set for their "No Filter" tour this summer, but they had to cancel it last month due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

However, the band ended up postponing a leg of the same tour last year as well. Mick had to undergo surgery to replace a heart valve, and they had to put the tour on pause mere days after announcing dates of their performances.

Following the success of the surgery, Mick took a few days to recover before he thanked their fans for their well wishes and continued support. Taking to social media, Mick gave a "huge thank you" to the medical staff and added:

“Thank you everyone for all your messages of support, I’m feeling much better now and on the mend.”

Called "Rainy Day Podcasts," Mick's "Jagged Films" partnered with Victoria Pearman to produce original content for the network, which will be produced by Steve Bing with Josh Olson as the show's writer.
