The Rolling Stones will be invading Heinz Field this summer, and the Pittsburgh Steelers rolled out the red carpet Tuesday to make the announcement. Team president Art Rooney II was on hand for the announcement and the organization painted the classic Rolling Stones mouth on the field with the tongue painted black and gold.
Heinz Field has been a popular concert venue in recent years, and has often drawn criticism from city and local officials for the behavior of the attendees and the trash left behind after the show. None have been worse than Kenny Chesney's summer concert two years ago which saw dozens arrested and trash strewn across parking lots.
While The Rolling Stones certainly attract a different audience, I'm sure the city of Pittsburgh will be watching closely in terms of having Heinz Field be a re-occurring musical venue.
