If you’re wondering how old the members of The Rolling Stones are, the average age of the band’s surviving members is now a healthy 78 years of age. But the legendary group shows little sign of slowing down as they begin rehearsals for their 2024 Hackney Diamonds Tour.

So, just how old are The Rolling Stones these days? Fabulous frontman Mick Jagger, born in 1943, is now 80. The immortal guitarist Keith Richards also turned 80 late last year. Ronnie Wood is the youngest of the original surviving members at age 76. Sadly, drummer Charlie Watts passed away in 2021 shortly after turning 80; in his place comes Steve Jordan, who is a relatively young 67 years of age. Jordan first played on the group’s 13-date ‘No Filter’ tour just months after Watts’ passing.

Following Watts’ tragic passing and the group’s subsequent tribute for him, the Stones quickly made it clear that their upcoming tour dates weren’t getting cancelled.

Shortly thereafter, they announced their brand-new 2024 tour sponsored by AARP, taking them back on the road across 16 North American cities in support of their latest album, Hackney Diamonds. Fans can expect to hear the Stones’ biggest hits, including “Start Me Up,” “Gimme Shelter,” “Satisfaction,” and more, as well as deep cuts and music from their latest album.

The Hackney Diamonds Tour kicks off at the end of April, and a series of photos posted to The Rolling Stones’ social media pages revealed the group had started tour rehearsals. The band has been teasing the world tour with signs displayed across the US since late 2023, with a banner of their logo appearing at Empower Field at Mile High in Denver, and even atop two Aston Martin vehicles in the Las Vegas Grand Prix.

    It’s pretty obscene, actually. The Stones don’t need the money, and their corporation retains the right to every aspect of their brand, catalog and touring. They should make just enough to cover expenses and price tickets more reasonably for people to come enjoy their show/music.
