Scooped Here: The Rolling Stones Announce US Stadium Tour Sponsored, Appropriately, by AARP — for “Hackney Diamonds”


The combined ages of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Ronnie Wood will be 236 next spring.

So it’s only appropriate that AARP will be the sponsor of their next — and possibly final — stadium tour.

The tour will take the Stones to the Meadowlands and Giants Stadium in New York/New Jersey, as well Soldier Field in Chicago and SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles.

The band will be promoting “Hackney Diamonds,” their raved- about new album.

I told you a few days ago that this was going to happen. Having seen the group last month at a New York nightclub, I can tell you they are ready to get there and play up a storm.

How expensive will these tickets be? Through the roof, I expect. How can they not be?

But at least AARP will be there with easy access for the aging crowd! And maybe Lady Gaga will join them on a couple of dates!
