This Band Doing an AARP Concert is Making Me Feel Old
Imagine my shock when in the same week I celebrated a birthday somewhere in my forties, Facebook serves me up an ad in my feed from the AARP promoting a virtual concert with this popular band.
For those not aware, the AARP once stood for the American Association of Retired Persons, in 1999 they changed their name to just AARP, but we all know what's up when you start getting AARP junk mail and online advertisements, you're getting old. They aren't advertising to twenty and thirty-year-olds.
Anyway, the virtual concert coming up on August 19th stars nineties rock band Everclear, seeing this ad almost made me want to drink some Everclear. Everclear best known for their hits Santa Monica, I Will Buy You a New Life, and Father of Mine will do the free online show for anyone willing to give the AARP a license to send you emails, junk mail and endless phone calls selling insurance.
If this is a sign of things to come, get ready for that N'Sync or Backstreet Boys AARP partnership soon, or maybe even a Britney Spears or Christina Aguilera virtual AARP concert.
Everclear brought their "So Much for the Afterglow 20th Anniversary Tour" to Grandma's Marathon when they headlined 'Rock The Big Top' in 2017 with fellow nineties rockers Vertical Horizon and Fastball.
