The rolling stones

The Rolling Stones are too old to go to one of their own concerts after organisers incredibly banned all gig goers over the age of 45.

The special Super Bowl show takes place on February 5 and sees the wrinkly rockers play in front of thousands at Detroit’s Ford Field stadium.

Sensationally, organisers have prohibited anyone above the age of 45 from being part of the 2,000 strong volunteer force that go on the pitch because they would not have the legs to dance in front of the millions watching on TV over the world  

An organiser explained his decision: “You have to attend rehearsal and be able to stand for long stretches of time. And you have to run on to Ford Field with 2,000 other folks."
