The concert, in St. Louis, Missouri, followed a private gig last week and was Charlie’s first public performance since his death in August at the age of 80.

In honor of the drummer, the show began on an empty stage and images of the late star appeared on screens, accompanied by a drum beat.

Sir McKee, 78, a supporter of Ronnie Wood, 74, and Keith Richards, 77, said: “It was very emotional to see these pictures of Charlie on the big screen.

“This is our first visit without him. We will miss him very much.”

It was announced in August that Charlie would not be able to join him on the road because he was recovering from an indefinite procedure but died just a few weeks later.

Her bandmates were unable to attend her funeral at the time due to coveted protocol, rehearsing their shows in Boston.

Mack had previously said that Charlie was the glue that helped tie the members together.
