Several high-level sources confirmed Friday afternoon that The Rolling Stones will play N.C. State University’s Carter-Finley Stadium in Raleigh Wednesday, July 1. Rumors of the show have been circulating for days, and the stop appears to be part of a tour that was expected to be announced yesterday, Thursday, March 19, as part of a Stones campaign dubbed #SatisfactionThursday. Billboards announcing the big reveal have shown up in cities including Milwaukee, Atlanta, Orlando and Minneapolis, according to The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The Stones have not appeared in the United States since late 2013, and they last played North Carolina in October 2005 with a show at Duke University’s Wallace Wade Stadium. Carter-Finley, meanwhile, hasn’t hosted a concert since U2’s 360° Tour stopped in Raleigh in 2009. Officials with Carter-Finley Stadium and N.C. State Athletics did not respond to immediate request for comment, but the stadium’s schedule appears to be fairly empty. Some Stones prognosticators suspect the announcement will come March 31, though others think it could come as early as today.

Better hurry, as Keith Richards isn't getting any younger.
