With an acknowledgment that we all age... this is kind of rough.

She still sounds good on this version from 2009:

It might not be fair to compare this against the Nocturne version (complete with Robert Smith on guitar)... but...
Agreed, it's kind of rough, but that goes with the territory when you get older. My hat's off to her to having the guts and the drive to go out on tour at age 65, probably knowing that it's not going to be the way it used to be, but her fans appreciated it I'm sure.
I go back and forth on this. I respect the heck out of Paul Simon, for instance, for retiring from touring. If you're Mick Jagger and you still sound like it's 1973 - go for it. I think I actually posed this question a few years back, but is there a retirement age for performers? Or is it go until you literally can't go on stage anymore?
Yes there is, and pretty much every performer overstays by at least 10 years.

Keith Richards said he would find out the hard way when it was time for him to stop playing.

He's not emotionally prepared for the cutting letter we're going to send him when we deem him past his sell-by date
