Hola Pam,


Thank you for comment.

Depending in want do you want to say you can use the verbs "ESTAR" and "SER"

We use SER for date, occupation, characteristic, time, origin and relation.

We use ESTAR for position, location, action, condition and emotion.

Ya está muy viejo para esos conciertos. (condition)

¡Vas a ser el más viejo ahí! (chraracteristic)
