The Rolling Stones’ first concert since drummer Charlie Watts died was a memorable one, attendees said — and it took place at an exclusive private party bankrolled by New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.

The Monday event turned into an emotional evening for the band as a group of just 275 guests dined on sushi and sipped cocktails inside an enclosed tent on the Patriots’ home football field at Gillette Stadium in Boston, sources said.

“Mick Jagger had visible tears and his voice broke when he dedicated the private concert and the entire upcoming Stones tour to the memory of their late drummer Charlie Watts,” one attendee, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told The Post.

“Guitarist Keith Richards came over and embraced Mick as they shared the poignant moment,” the source added.

Watts died Aug. 24. at a hospital in London at age 80. The rest of the band, which lately has been rehearsing in Boston for an upcoming US tour that kicks off Sunday, wasn’t able to return to the UK because of COVID travel and quarantine restrictions, according to reports.

“We have been touring with him for 59 years and we miss our great friend and band mate,” Jagger said, according to the attendee. Ronnie Wood added, “we are praying for you and we are playing for you, Charlie.”

Billionaire Kraft, who “loves to throw parties,” looked ready to celebrate during the first major party he has has hosted since the outbreak. His girlfriend Dr. Dana Blumberg was seen by his side throughout the night.

Previously Kraft has brought in Elton John and Paul McCartney to perform at other events. But his favorite group seems to be the Stones — they performed at another one of Kraft’s events in 2016. Monday’s set list included “Gimme Shelter,” “Start Me Up,” “Miss You,” and “Let’s Spend the Night Together.”

In what looked like a nod to the pandemic and the importance of healthcare, guests included Moderna co-founder Noubar Afeyan and CEO of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute Dr. Laurie Glimcher. Vaccination was required to attend.

Other notable guests included Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, Draft Kings CEO Jason Robins, and Providence Equity founder Jonathan Nelson.
