Panic for Rolling Stones as tour tickets go unsold
But perhaps most embarrassing of all for the band who have a combined age of 249 is that cut-price tickets are also being sold to pensioners through the company Saga.
Saga, a company offering value-for-money services for the elderly has stepped in to offer half-price tickets to see the band during the European leg of their 'A Bigger Bang' tour.
The Kent-based organisation, which offers the elderly cheaper options for lifestyle opportunities such as holidays, insurance, financial products and entertainment, boasts on its website: 'See Gods of rock for yourself - The Rolling Stones return to rock in the UK live.'
Saga spokesman Paul Green added: 'We're delighted to be able to offer our customers this fantastic opportunity to see one of the world's greatest rock 'n' roll bands.
'It's an indication of what a lively bunch of today's older people are that we can encourage them to go to stadium rock concerts.
Well, I still manage to move quite briskly about.
And I plan to live forever, or die trying.
