Some people can’t wait to put in their two weeks as soon as they hit retirement age at 67.

Apparently, quite a few musicians and celebrities didn’t get the memo as they continue to work well into their golden years.

And, after doing a bit of digging, we found 19 (!) stars who are still on the road playing gigs all over North America well into their 80s.

From the spry Danny Hutton of Three Dog Night touring at just 80 years young to 91-year-old spring chicken William Shatner sharing laughs with crowds, many huge names just can’t get enough of the stage.

We’re talking Willie Nelson, Ringo Starr, Smokey Robinson, the list goes on and on.

So, if you want to see these living legends live on their potential final tours, here’s everything you need to know about how to see these 19 senior citizen icons born in the 1930s and 1940s onstage in 2023.
