I'm late 50s - like Keith says for some fans, the band has always been there like the moon and stars. It surely applies to me - cars, women, houses, jobs, hobbies come and go but they're the one of the few constants lol

I took the liberty of calculating some statics of the average age IORR members

Total members that filled in there age 107
Youngest member 19
Oldest member 75
Average age IORR members 53.8

1 member is in his teens
4 members are in their 20's
6 members are in their 30's
21 members are in their
34 members are in their 50's
33 members are in their 60's
7 members are in their 70's

Not a huge sampling, and perhaps the over 50 crowd represented here more during the down time than say if there were a tour upcoming etc.. but also may represent the fans fairly accurately. Hard to say, but my bet is the average age goes down some when more fans are participating during a tour.

Thanks for adding up the posts.
Roughly-
69% over 50
31% under 50

Thank you for taking the time, NICOS. For a group that released their first record in 1963 and had their final ‘global hit’ in 1981, I suppose it’s about right. The Stones surely have many younger fans then the demographic here would suggest, I’d imagine. It’s just that here is, perhaps, not a medium they’d chose to gravitate towards.

Like the Stones themselves, a majority of us fans are old farts.

The IORR visitors ages are reflected by the same age you see in crowds across the world. In some parts of the world, there are a lot of young fans, especially South America. In Europe there has been new generations with many young fans coming to shows.

Considering the sky-high ticket prices, I'd imagine the average age of the concert attendee is fifty-something: middle-aged, more affluent, etc. I do feel the fan-base is ageing. A decade ago, I'd have found it hard to believe that there are those here in their 70's. There wasn't, of course.

In 2006 I was at a Stones concert in Rome's Olympic Stadium. The place was not sold out. At some point "somebody" (maybe even the Stones?) decided that the audience in the outer rings was allowed to come down to the pitch (where in front all those "oldies" had expensive seats). The red&white tape was no match for all those YOUNG fans, so in a matter of minutes they were all around, in between and in front of us "snobs" grinning smiley
Obviously people complained, but I suggested to my friends and others to go and stand on top of our seats and have fun that way. It worked. Many, many young fans in between those old(er) ones who could afford the expensive tickets. Fantastic!
Sadly, some Americans were so p*ssed that they left. They could see the fun side of it.
Many young fans, Big Al cool smiley (meanwhile well in their 30s now ...)

Oh, I know there are younger fans attending the shows; especially in South America, as bv pointed out. Yes, some of us 'younger' Tell Me contributors are approaching their 40's; frightening stuff! Don't get me started on the greying beard!

I do see a number of younger fans, even in the US. And prolly more now than a few years ago. I really first noticed it at Desert Trip. Yes, that was a different kind of show, but the whole line up was old and got their start in the 60s.

I can well believe that younger fans might find the message board format a bit dated ( not IORR in particular, but message boards in general). Where do you think they might be hanging out?

I would say the average age is around 50.

EDIT: just noticed the stats by Nicos - saying the same thing as my rough estimation.

I recall there was over 10 years ago a similar question. And at the time, based also on statistics, the avarage was around 40.

We ain't getting no younger...

TickTock and Instagram would be my guess. I don't understand either, admittedly.

It could be like you both say. I think the 'golden age' of message boards like ours was the 00's. Then it was all novel and fresh - and we all were a bit younger - the idea and chance to commmunicate with fellow fans over anything Stones-related was very inspiring. There was a lot to discuss about. Then people get to used to it, and there was nothing novel about it any longer. I think as the years went by, people just got a bit tired after having discussed about any relevant issue related to the Stones (probably multiple times). There wasn't any longer such eagerness, inspiration and passion. What is there to add? And at the same time, there weren't any longer enough of new contributors to make a change (like starting it altogether fresh again). It could be that for those new ones the atmosphere wasn't that inspiring either, since it was difficult to get the old guard excited again to talk about the same thing over and over again...

For example, there was a time BV needed to to make measures to cool down Taylor/Wood-debates... Now that issue doesn't seem to interest anyone (be it good or bad...)

My personal opinion is that the strongest value of IORR still is being the medium of info related (mostly) to tours. I guess that is also the trait our moderator appriecates most.

You're right there cool smiley
Ten years ago I sometimes told people that the Rolling Stones were already part of my life for a shocking 47 years. Next month I have to tell them that it's an outragious ... 57 years. That's 7 years more than the average age of "all" IORR fans!
Somehow time is still on our (lucky ones) side ...
But yes, I also lost many Stones fan friends over, say, the past two decades. I carry them in my heart, though.

50

Turned 50 last year and still can't wrap my head around it - luckily I still have my hair -

First Rolling Stones memory is my older brother playing Goat's Head Soup on the console record player at my Grandparent's house in 1973 - it's a vivid memory because the cover scared me- but not as scary as our Mom yelling at him when the last song came on-

First concert was Greensboro, 1978 with the same brother,cousin & some of their friends - I guess I was their mascot-

Still in my prime tho

I was 12 when I first heard them.
They were releasing singles and the first LP on London.Records in NA.
I liked it, and the Singles, and was in.

I grew up as a pre-teen and then a teenager,

Still in.

I took the liberty of calculating some statics of the average age IORR members

Added 8 members with an average of 49.6 ;o) so the overall average went down with 0.3 year

Total members that filled in there age 107 115
Youngest member 19
Oldest member 75
Average age IORR members 53.8 53.5

1 member is in his teens
6 members are in their 20's
6 members are in their 30's
21 members are in their 40's
37 members are in their 50's
35 members are in their 60's
8 members are in their 70's

The most common age are:
5 members have the same age 49,50 and 70
6 members have the same age 57,58 and 60
7 members have the same age 61
