The band is scheduled to play 17 concerts in 15 cities over four weeks, reaching an estimates 1.5 million concert attendees and over 24 million more via social media. Many of those fans are adults with careers, families and varying degrees of plans for retirement.
Alliance for Lifetime Income executive director, Jean Statler, told Rolling Stone magazine that the partnership has been in the works since last summer.
"One of the things about today is that people age and continue to live life to the fullest but don't think about retiring," Statler said. "We started talking to the Stones in June 2018 and jumped on the chance to be their tour sponsor. It was a dream come true. ... [It] was a way to get 100 percent coverage of our target audience."
She says the alliance is made up of 20 financial businesses. It doesn't recommend specific retirement products, but can help people get the help they need to plan.
The Stones themselves won't lend their faces to the campaign, instead, the road crew is going to be featured as examples of people who should be thinking about retirement.
Statler says The Stones' partnership will go a long way towards addressing "the societal crisis of people outliving their money."
