So? A big chunk of the population will be over 60 quite soon, many of them
will have 7-10 years ahead of them still at work and then 10-15 years more
in a relatively healthy retirement.

People have been worried about the average age of audiences since I can
remember, I even  remember the "dead music" moniker being uttered by a
"journalist", allegedly  covering cultural matters, almost 30 years ago.
