Rolling Stones Hint At Thursday Tour Announcement

The Rolling Stones teased news of a coming tour in 2013 by posting billboards hinting at the pending announcement in some of the cities they would go on to play that year. The band also used the hashtag “#startmeupwednesday” on social networks to foreshadow the tour that was indeed announced on a Wednesday. Mick Jagger & Co. are up to their old tricks as we have our first report of a Stones’ billboard and the band has started using the hashtag “#SatisfactionThursday.”

Fans have come across a website where you can sign up for e-mail alerts about The Stones’ 2015 North American Tour that was created by promotion company AEG. There’s little doubt an announcement about the tour will be made on Thursday, March 19 from the use of “#satisfactionthursday” on the billboard and website. Furthermore, San Diego’s ABC affiliate reports the announcement is coming on March 19 and will be followed by a pre-sale for AMEX card holders March 26 and the general onsale March 30. The station’s sources say The Rolling Stones will open their tour on May 24 at Petco Park.

We’ll soon find out whether The Stones will perform Sticky Fingers in its entirety at each stop as a previous report indicated. Here’s a look at the billboard that popped up in Atlanta today teasing a Thursday tour announcement:
