The Rolling Stones are advising fans to stand by for a major announcement… perhaps a new record and/or a 50th anniversary concert.
The latest tease is posted on the group’s Facebook page and points to a mobile phone app. It pictures a growling animal whose eyes blink. As “Start Me Up” plays in the background, the app displays the message “Keep Your Eyes Peeled.”
Just a couple of days ago, Mick Jagger tweeted a photo of himself surrounded by what appears to be the Stones' music gear, in a Paris recording studio. This marks at least the third time the Stones have gathered recently. In April, they rehearsed in the New York area for an HBO documentary this fall on HBO. And last month, they celebrated their 50th year together with a photo exhibit in London.
At that time, Jagger told a British newspaper the Stones would perform live together this fall. And just before that, Keith Richards told Rolling Stone magazine that he's looking forward to writing songs again with Jagger and returning to the studio.
