How old is too old to play Rock and Roll?

I understand they will be playing their new old favorites

Love the Stones but it's kind of like your favorite Quarterback playing one season too long.

I saw Ozzy in concert once; he looked like a corpse on stage. That was over 20 years ago.

In all fairness though, he didn’t sound bad
I saw Ozzie around 10 years ago, and he had to read the lyrics from a floor mounted teleprompter. He was wearing what I believe was a woman's hat and was about as scary as Betty White. Sad after seeing him with Sabbath in the late 70s.

I actually thought the last Stones' show I saw was their best in a long time. For several tours it was kinda "phoned in", but maybe because they're nearing the end, they put more into it? I've seen every US tour since '78, so I will be going again in the Fall unless the date conflicts with travel.
