Rolling Stones fans can’t always get what they want. At least not yet.
The expected announcement Thursday of a Rolling Stones tour, which will likely include a Minneapolis show, has been delayed even though electronic billboards around the country hinted at something happening for that day.
A Rolling Stones spokesperson told the Star Tribune: “We will, of course, let you know when there’s something to announce.”
A source close to the Stones suggested that the announcement will come on March 31.
There was no official word on why nothing happened today. In an interview with Nashville TV station WKRN, the city’s mayor, Karl Dean, said there was “an issue with the nationwide promoter’s ticketing.”
Nashville’s LP Field and Minneapolis’ TCF Bank Stadium are expected to be on the list of U.S. outdoor venues for the Stones’ summer tour.
Billboards around the country, including one on I-494 westbound near Eden Prairie, went up late last week featuring the Stones logo and such lyrics as “satisfaction” and “start me up” and "Thursday."
Mick Jagger and Keith Richards are reportedly both in New York, according to a source close to the band -- something that is not common.
The band is encouraging fans to go to www.justakissaway.rocks for information.
