Are the Rolling Stones playing Raleigh this summer?

Posted March 17, 2015

— In what is being billed as #SatisfactionThursday, The Rolling Stones are expected to announce the dates for their upcoming tour on Thursday. But will the tour include a stop in Raleigh? Rumors have been rampant since The Rolling Stones fansite, It's Only Rock'n Roll, posted a list of the rumored tour dates and included a July 1 date at North Carolina State University's Carter Finley Stadium in Raleigh.

No official confirmation yet, but U2 famously played the venue in 2009.

Music news website, SongMango.com, said The Rolling Stones are also expected to announce the re-issue of their classic 1971 album, Sticky Fingers, on Thursday. The band is said to be playing that album in its entirety at each show.

Rolling Stones billboards have gone up in numerous cities expected to be tour stops. None so far in Raleigh. The tour is expected to kick off May 24 at Petco Park in San Diego.
