It’s hard to believe that The Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger turns 71 years old on Saturday (July 26th). Even at an age where most are enjoying retirement, the charismatic singer is still singing and moving on stage just as he had when The Stones first began.
To this day, no one has moves like Jagger, so to celebrate the singer’s birthday, we broke down Mick’s 7 signature dance moves that he’s made famous over his 50 plus years on stage and justly proves that age is just a number.
The Lips: Mick’s puckered lips have become such an iconic part of his repertoire that the group’s stage for its 50 And Counting tour was shaped like his lips.
The clapping: His go-to move to get the crowd started up!
The double point: It’s all about the audience when Mick breaks out the double point!
The arm raise: There’s nothing like noting the big finish to the song like a single arm raise to the sky!
The hand on the hips: Mick frequently breaks out this move to show off his rock star attitude. After all, what’s a show without a little hip-shaking and Jagger swagger?
The bend: Mick never fails to impress with his odd bendy contortions on stage.
The Strut: And finally, a performance is never complete until Mick uses the stage as his own personal catwalk to strut all his moves.
