Having just announced that they will headline England’s Glastonbury Festival, The Rolling Stones are (strongly) hinting at a U.S. tour announcement this Wednesday (April 3) with a Twitter hashtag, #startmeupwednesday. Both the band’s official Twitter account, as well as the second account they started around the release of their GRRR! best of, GRRRegory, have been tweeting the hashtag since Friday afternoon (March 29).

The group’s official tumblr posted a video of a projection on the side of a building in Los Angeles that repeated Stones song titles in a loop. Fans have been expecting some sort of tour announcement from the Stones, following the recent news that the group have signed on with tour promoter AEG Live. We’ll have more on this story as it develops.
