(WXYZ) — Are the Rolling Stones coming to the Motor City? The legendary band hasn't announced a tour, but billboards have been popping up in cities across the country – including Detroit – featuring song lyrics and the band's logo.

The band also tweeted out a short video on Monday afternoon with the caption "feeling restless" followed by the tongue logo.

One billboard, along southbond M-10 in Detroit, had the words "Get What You Need" with the logo. Those lyrics are from the band's 1969 song "You Can't Always Get What You Want." We're awaiting photos of the billboards in Detroit, but they match billboards pictured from Twitter users below.

The Stones haven't played Detroit since coming to Comerica Park on July 8, 2015 as part of the "Zip Code Tour."

It's likely the group would play Ford Field, as a report from Cleveland.com has the group playing at FirstEnergy Stadium on June 19. They report that an announcement could come as early as Thursday morning.

They last played Ford Field in 2006 during Super Bowl XL and again in 2002 as part of the "Licks World Tour." We have reached out to a spokesperson for the Lions for comment.

Last year, lead singer Mick Jagger, 76, underwent heart surgery which forced the postponement of their tour.

Billboards have also popped up in cities like Pittsburgh and Buffalo.
