Many onlookers initially thought the collaboration was a joke. After all, the Stones’ musicians are all of a distinguished age – Mick Jagger is 80, Keith Richards is 79 (turning 80 in December), and the youngest member, Ronnie Wood, is 76. AARP (formerly the American Association of Retired Persons) seemed a little too on-the-nose to be the tour’s true sponsor, but indeed that is the case.
“AARP is sponsoring Stones Tour ’24 Hackney Diamonds, and members can get early access to tickets,” declared a statement on the organization’s official website. Tickets for the trek go on sale to the general public on Dec. 1, however as part of their sponsorship, AARP members will have access to a presale that begins Nov. 29.
Upon announcement, the tour — and its sponsor — began trending on social media. “You know you’re getting old when you get early access to Rolling Stones tickets because ‘you know a guy’ and ‘your guy’ is the AARP,” joked one user. Others noted the sponsorship felt “like an admittedly obvious joke becoming reality.”
