Age limit set for halftime show

From Associated Press

Mick Jagger and his bandmates may be nearing senior citizenship, but Super Bowl planners want only people 45 and younger to take the field during the Rolling Stones' halftime show.

The NFL is offering 2,000 people a chance to watch the Stones play during the Feb. 5 extravaganza. They will be expected to dance, sing and cheer.

People are asked to apply in groups of 20 or more and be at least 18 years old and no older than 45. Signup is under way on the website of Star Flow Entertainment, the company organizing the volunteers.

The NFL says the reason for the age cutoff is that the job is physically challenging. Volunteers must enter and exit the field quickly and be on their feet for long periods. They will wait in a tunnel under Ford Field for most of the first half.
