Rumors have circulated in recent months that The Rolling Stones are planning to tour North America in 2019, and now some major evidence pointing to such a trek has emerged.
As reported by the long-running Stones fan site IORR.org, the band’s famous lips-and-tongue logo was spotted at two U.S. football stadiums on Sunday.
First off, a large banner bearing the logo was hung from the outside of the Denver Broncos’ Broncos Stadium at Mile High during the Broncos’ game against the Houston Texans. Then, at the New England Patriots’ home game against the Green Bay Packers at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, the Patriots’ cheerleaders did a dance routine to the band’s classic tune “Start Me Up” and revealed that they were wearing Stones t-shirts, while the logo also was flashed on the scoreboard.
In addition, The Rolling Stones’ official website has posted a message encouraging fans to sign up to the band’s mailing list, along with a note that reads, “Don’t miss out, as you never know what could be coming!”
The Rolling Stones’ most recent trek was this year’s No Filter Tour of Europe, which ran from May until July. The last time that the rock legends toured the U.S. and Canada was in 2015; the band also played a few stateside shows in October 2016.
