Earlier today, Mick seemed in good spirits as he left his hotel for the Anfield stadium.

The musician looked dapper as he waved to the crowd in a sleek pink jacket over a similarly colored crew neck jumper with a black and white shirt collar.

As he walked towards the vehicle, he hid his long hair under a matching baseball cap.

When they take 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.
