Happy April Fools’ Day! Let’s take a look at some of the more concrete rock news this Monday morning.

It’s looking more and more like the recent rumor regarding the Rolling Stones and their partnership with AEG Live as the promoter for an upcoming 18-date arena tour is just days away from being officially confirmed.

The Stones spent the weekend teasing what in all likelihood is an impending announcement of the a spring North American tour – exactly what sources close to the band told Pollstar last week.

Under the heading #StartMeUpWednesday, the Stones released an image of the theme on a billboard in San Francisco, as well as a photo of the song lyrics displayed on a message screen on a train platform in Chicago.

As part of the teaser campaign, the band also posted a video on Sunday that featured lyrics from 10 of their tunes projected on the side of a mysterious building.

As mentioned, Pollstar recently reported that the Stones had confirmed AEG Live as the promoter for an 18-date arena tour of North American starting in early May, with official news to be released in early April.
