Leo. You mean the band is immortal! They've been super super stars for over 50 years!

Keep going lads.

Saw the Stones at their peak in the early 70s, no desire to see them now.

But I'm really, really glad they're still out there doing it and that people young enough to be their grandchildren still want to watch 'em when they do.

Somehow the image of walkers, wheelchairs and little oxygen tanks on wheels doesn't fit my image of a stones concert. And that's just the band members...

I never forgave Mick for his unashamedly Tebbit-style-on-your-bike moment back in the 80s (Let's Work).

That said, the Stones are responsible for some of the best rock and roll back in the 60s and 70s. That can never be taken away from them.

They've come a long way from those Eel Pie Island gigs.

They are legends, sure, but at what point is it time to call it quits?

I'd guess that the first thing to happen would be that they would stop selling out arenas.

I don't know when that was though. Can you tell me? When did they stop selling out arenas?

I saw the Stones in Seattle and they were amazing and that was over 25 years ago! Rock til you drop!

Mic J. is 76

I saw them in '72

Mic still looks the same. An old wrinkled English man. Great music though. Gambare.

Lads?

Start me up!

Why not? Too old to rock and roll now? :D

They haven't! A lot of people will have to get their tickets from a scalper.

Ha! Could be! As another great rock band once sang - Too old to rock'n'roll, too young to die...

That can’t be - another poster has indicated no one wants to see them:

Had this been a much younger woman like Madonna, there'd be comments like 'Get off the stage Grandma', 'Act your age', 'Retire'. As long as people like her as well as the RS can fill stadiums, then go for it. I'm just sick of the double standards.

Are you going to tell Sir Paul to call it quits? He isn't either.

It's like what Elton John said: pay $250 to see Madonna lip-synch. That's all she does on stage, that and pose in sickening bondage and/or sacrilegious acts on stage.

The Rolling Stones invented hard rock and inspired countless bands. They are legends. And they play their songs onstage and Mick sings even while wiggling his butt.

What has Madonna done that's important musically in the past 30 years? Zero. And who has she inspired? All those corporate pop tarts. Not a good influence, man.

OTOH, there are plenty of real good 'chick rockers' out there - real good women rockers. Heart, Joan Jett, Plastiscenes, Bangles, Go-Gos, Frankie Rose, Shonen Knife, Gurr, Le Butcherettes, L7, keep adding on the list.

Seen the Rolling Stones in 1997 and again in 2015. Love to see them again. Keep on rolling!

The '50th Anniversary tour' started up in 2012 and it has never really stopped. Every year since they have toured somewhere, with some 'reason/excuse' like putting out the newest 2CD/1DVD live set of a previous show somewhere in the past.

Rolling Stones Live on Ganymede, Moon of Planet Jupiter 1990. ****Were you there?
