The band made their return to the UK stage at the Anfield football stadium on Thursday last week. The Stones will also play two shows at BTS Hyde Park in London this summer.

Last week, Mick’s girlfriend, Melanie Hamrick, 34, proved that their son was quite the dancing sensation as Deveraux mirrored his famous father in a video shared to Instagram on Thursday.

As The Rolling Stones stormed the stage in Liverpool, the youngster shimmied and shook his blonde locks whilst Mick belted out You Can’t Always Get What You Want.

Meanwhile, Mick was ever the rock star as he and the Rolling Stones put on a show-stopping performance.

Performing in Liverpool for the first time in 50 years, the band put on an energetic production as they continued their European ‘Sixty’ tour.

Pairing the ensemble with black skinny jeans, Mick stood between bandmates Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood as they stormed the stage.

Ronnie Wood matched Mick in a red leather jacket with a black detail design, while Keith Richards was ever the rocker in a dark gray leather jacket and a blue bandana.

The band seemed delighted to be back in Liverpool, as Mick threw his hands in the air and towards the audience.

Earlier in the day, Mick seemed in high spirits as he left his hotel for Anfield Stadium.

The musician looked dapper as he waved to crowds in a smart pink jacket over a similar color round neck jumper with a black and white shirt collar.

As he headed into the vehicle he hid his long hair under a matching baseball cap.

When they do hit the stage at the home of Liverpool FC, it will be the first time the Stones have played in Liverpool since 1971, according to Liverpool Echo.
