NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The Rolling Stones are coming to Nashville, according to a source familiar with the legendary group’s plans for an upcoming tour, but the announcement of an announcement appear to be a bit premature.
Earlier today, the mayor indicated an announcement about a Nashville stop would be made at 11 a.m. on Thursday at LP Field.
Wednesday afternoon his office has confirmed that it will now be re-scheduled at a later date.
A source who has been briefed on the postponement says “the local show will proceed, but the announcement of the national tour has been postponed.”
The source indicated that “contracts have been signed” with the promoter to bring the Stones to LP Field at a date News 2 previously learned is sometime in mid to late June.
An issue with the nationwide promoter’s ticketing is being blamed for the delay.
When asked about the scheduled show earlier, Mayor Dean answered the questions using song titles from the Stones’ half a century of hits. And his responses were apparently made up on the spot. Watch the video above.
The Stones last played Nashville at the then-Gaylord Entertainment Center in November 2002.
