The article also says that billboards with the Stones’ logo and “You Get What You Need” popping up in various cities. A Twitter search on the #SatisfactionThursday hashtag finds that the billboards have been spotted in Atlanta, Buffalo and Pittsburgh, suggesting that the tour will reach those cities. ABC’s affiliate in San Diego is reporting that the tour will kick off on May 24 at Petco Park, with a presale for American Express cardholders taking place on March 26 and the sale to the general public beginning March 30.
Another rumor is that the group will change things up a bit this time around. Earlier this week it was reported that they may play Sticky Fingers in its entirety.
The Rolling Stones have been touring regularly since beginning the 50 & Counting tour in late 2012 as a celebration of their 50th anniversary. After playing North America in 2013 (our review of their Chicago show can be found here), they hit Asia, Europe and Oceania, calling it the 14 on Fire tour.
