Is Minneapolis about to unveil a Rolling Stones concert this summer?

An ice sculpture at the IDS Center could be the ultimate tell.

It's looking likely that the Rolling Stones will perform in the Twin Cities this summer. 

Unveiled Monday at the IDS Center in downtown Minneapolis is an ice sculpture featuring the iconic British rock band's tongue-and-lips logo. The sculpture's unveiling comes just a few days before a Thursday concert announcement that the City of Minneapolis and U.S. Bank Stadium are planning. 

The sculpture also was unveiled the same day the Rolling Stones teased on social media a possible tour. In an 8-second video clip posted to Twitter, the Stones' logo is cast into a moonlit sky with a Batman-like spotlight, with the caption "Feeling restless." 

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and company last played for Minnesota in 2015 at TCF Bank Stadium, one year before U.S. Bank Stadium opened. 

Nothing is certain yet, but the stars do appear to be aligning, with the Star Tribune speculating that the Stones' No Filter 2020 Tour could line up well for a show in Minneapolis this June or July. 

Other confirmed concerts at U.S. Bank Stadium this year: 

  • May 2: Kenny Chesney with Florida Georgia Line and Old Dominion
  • June 27: Motley Crue with Def Leppard and Poison
  • Aug. 22: George Strait with Chris Stapleton and Little Big Town
  • Aug. 30: Rammstein

U.S. Bank Stadium will also host the NCAA Wrestling Championships Mar. 19-21 and the X Games July 16-19.
