London: The Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts feels that the band members have become too old to embark on long tours.

The veteran rockers are set to take on a series of concerts as part of their upcoming tour in Asia and Australia later this month, reported Contactmusic.

"This is short compared to what we`ve done before, but it needs to be, I think, at our tender age. The thought of doing 50 shows, which was normal at one time for us, is quite daunting now," Watts said.

"Now we`re doing that in little bits. If we don`t do any more I`ll be quite happy with that," he added.
