Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger busts out his best moves in a solo dance video.

Mick Jagger is well known for his on-stage energy, and he just shared a little part of his preparation.

The 78-year-old Rolling Stones frontman posted a video on Instagram of himself alone in a dance studio, practising his steps ahead of the band's next show.

Jagger shared the post ahead of the band's show at The Dome at America's Center, St. Louis, Missouri, the first 'proper' comeback show of the resumed No Filter tour after last week's private concert hosted by New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.

He followed the concert with another video, this time showing off his dancing as part of the set at the concert, saying" "Thanks St. Louis for a great night!"

The final leg of the No Filter tour mark the first shows played by The Rolling Stones since the death of Charlie Watts, who had been their drummer since 1963.

Watts had pulled out of the dates in early August, citing ill health, but it was still a shock when he died on August 24 2021 at the age of 80.

He had previously given his blessing to his replacement Steve Jordan, calling the musician his "great friend".

Jordan has stepped up as the band's touring drummer while not officially joining the Stones lineup.

As expected, the band continued to pay tribute to Watts during their show, walking on to photos of Watts and the sound of a drum.

After openers 'Street Fighting Man' and 'It's Only Rock 'n Roll (But I Like It)', the band dedicated 'Tumbling Dice' to Watts, with Jagger admitting "we'll miss Charlie so much, on and off the stage".

Speaking at their previous show in Foxborough, Massachusetts, Jagger got visibly choked up on stage ahead of their performance.

"It's a bit of a poignant night for us because it's our first tour in 59 years that we've done without our lovely Charlie Watts," he said.

"And we all miss Charlie so much. We miss him as a band, we miss him as a friend on and off the stage and we've got so many memories of Charlie.

"And I'm sure some of you who have seen us before have got memories of Charlie as well. I hope you will remember him like we do."

The Stones continue the No Filter tour on September 20 at the Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte.
