Rolling Stones fans can't always get what they want. At least not yet.

The expected announcement Thursday of a Rolling Stones tour, which is likely to include a Minneapolis show, has been delayed even though electronic billboards around the country hinted at something happening on Thursday.

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 Thursday. 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 on the Stones' summer tour.

It is anticipated that the tour will start May 24 in San Diego.

Billboards around the country, including one on Interstate 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."

That buzz fueled speculation of a tour announcement on Thursday.

The band is encouraging fans to go to for information.

The Stones last performed in the Twin Cities in 2005 at the Xcel Energy Center.
