Rolling Stones announcement teased on area billboards
Rolling Stones fans could be getting some “Satisfaction” this week.
Billboards around town featuring the band’s iconic tongue logo and the words “taste so good” — lyrics from the band’s “Brown Sugar” — began popping up over the weekend. They were accompanied by a one word tease — “Thursday” — that, according to Stones fan sites, will mark the announcement of summer tour dates from the band.
Stones fan site iorr.org — that stands for “it’s only rock n roll” — lists a July 8 Comerica Park date for the Stones’ summer run. The date falls during a one-week Tigers road trip that leads into Major League Baseball’s All-Star break; the Tigers play the Blue Jays July 5 and don’t have another home game until July 17 against the Orioles.
Comerica Park was the site the last time the Stones played Detroit, in August 2005. (That’s not counting the band’s performance at Ford Field during halftime of Super Bowl XL, in February 2007.)
If the concert comes to fruition, it would add to what is shaping up to be a booming year for stadium concerts in Detroit. Taylor Swift, Kenny Chesney, One Direction, AC/DC and Luke Bryan all have shows lined up at Ford Field, while Zac Brown Band is set to play Comerica Park in September.
