When Charlie Watts passed away on this week, it was unclear if The Rolling Stones still planned on embarking on their No Filter U.S. tour (Watts had already pulled out of the tour after undergoing emergency heart surgery earlier this month).

According to The Sun, the show will go on because Watts' bandmates believe that's what the drummer would have wanted. And they plan to honor him onstage.

“The band want to make the show a celebration of his life. He was like a brother to them but they know he would have hated the thought of them cancelling shows," a source told the outlet. “Charlie had given them his blessing to tour without him following his operation, so they will honour his wishes.”
