Signs point to a Rolling Stones tour announcement Thursday, but will Tampa Bay get some satisfaction?

Cryptic billboards with the Stones' lips logo, messages such as "Satisfaction" or "Let's Spend the Night Together" and the word "Thursday" have been popping up here and all over the country. Meanwhile, the band has put out the hashtag #SatisfactionThursday, and fans can register for alerts on the site justakissaway.rocks.

Tampa Bay Times staffers spied digital billboards flashing the Stones message Monday on Interstate 275 , but they weren't found easily Tuesday.

The website songmango.com is reporting that a tentative tour includes a June 13 stop in Orlando and June 16 or 17 in Atlanta — plenty of time to squeeze in a Tampa stop as the tour evolves, no? Negotiations typically continue right up to official announcements on big tours.

We'll see in Thursday if Tampa Bay will get what it needs.
