About the fans reaction:
The concert offered many memorable performances including the performance by The Rolling Stones the legendary rock group which came together virtually after so many years to perform 1968 hit “You Can’t Always Get What You Want”. People were amazed to see the band reunite virtually to perform after so many years. The performance made the fans talking on twitter about the performance, the centre of discussion was drummer Charlie Watts who despite the lack of a drum kit joined his bandmates. Charlie Watts performing despite lack of a set of drums at his house gathered a lot of appreciation from the fan.
He smiled all the time during his performance and performed freely. One of the fan @NickBromberg tweeted jokingly that “Very much enjoying that Charlie Watts spent his entire life as the drummer for The Rolling Stones and apparently doesn’t have a set of drums in his house,”. One of the users explained it as “the greatest thing” ever seen. Some of them went one step further and hilariously offered to raise money to buy drums for Charlie Watts. Some of them also compared him playing his chair during the show as best work from home.
