Over the weekend, UltimateClassicRock.com reported that the Rolling Stones are expected to announce a 2015 tour this Thursday, as in March 19. They’re being unusually coy about it, with a series of tweets with hashtags like #SatisfactionThursday and, just to confuse things, #SatisfactionWednesday, accompanied by 30-second teaser videos.
As you can see, the tweets lead to a site called justakissaway.rocks. That takes you to a page with the Stones’ lips-and-tongue logo and the legend “You get what you need,” and a place to sign up for alerts.
Teaser billboards have also been popping up in various cities, including Dallas. KZPS/92.5 FM “Lone Star 92.5” DJ Jeff K posted Monday morning on the classic-rock station’s website about the billboards, which include such Stones-y phrases as “Start Me Up,” “Taste So Good” and, again, “You Get What You Need.”
Rumor is that the Stones will play AT&T Stadium in Arlington; according to the KZPS post, the date is likely June 6. There’s an outside chance the show will be at the American Airlines Center, where they last played DFW in 2005. Although direct links to our review have vanished, you can find it on this message board by scrolling down; on that night, the Stones — especially Mick Jagger — were on fire, out to prove that a then-more-than-40-year-old band wasn’t ready to go gentle into that good night. It will be interesting to see what they can pull off 10 more years after that.
Speaking of the Stones and 50-odd years ago, we received an email from Richard Houghton, an England-based author, is seeking recollections of a show the band played Nov. 21, 1965, at Fort Worth’s Will Rogers Memorial Coliseum for a book he’s writing. So he’s looking for people who were there. “They may have been teenagers then,” Houghton writes. “They'll certainly be seniors now and I'd love to hear what they recall of the show, who their date was and what their parents thought of them attending the concert.”
If you happened to be at that 1965 show, contact Houghton at email@example.com, or drop him a line at Richard Houghton, 32 Manor Avenue, Preston, PR2 8DN, England.
This isn’t from the 1965 show, but it is from Will Rogers, in a famous show the Stones played there in 1978:
