News portals in Poland say Mick Jagger made a reference to Poland’s controversial judicial system overhaul during a Rolling Stones concert.

According to Gazeta.pl, Jagger spoke in Polish to fans at Sunday’s concert in Warsaw’s National Stadium, saying: “I am too old to be a judge but not too old to sing.” One of the judicial changes is setting an age limit for judges.

Polish democracy icon Lech Walesa sent a letter to the rock group Saturday asking it to make a gesture of support for Poland’s judges and the rule of law. Many European institutions say Poland is threatened by the overhaul implemented by the right-wing government.

According to Onet.pl, Jagger also said Poles should see how much they have achieved since the band’s 1967 Warsaw concert.
