Organisers of THE ROLLING STONES’ upcoming performance at Detroit’s Super Bowl have been forced to lift a controversial ban against audience members over the age of 45.
Initially ageing fans were told they would be refused entry to the field and dance area during the concert because the US National Football Team deemed the show too strenuous for older attendees.
But when critics insisted the decision meant the rockers, who boast a combined age of 246, were too old for their own show, officials were forced to revoke the ban.
The area immediately before the stage is reserved for 2000 rock volunteers who will be asked to sing and boogie for the TV cameras.
NFL spokesman BRIAN McCARTHY says, “We wanted to open it up.”
