According to Reuters, “Rolling Stones to Blimp New York“.

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – The Rolling Stones plan to drop in from the sky next week to announce their first tour in three years, according to a U.S. government official.

The veteran rockers will commandeer an airship and cruise into Van Cortlandt Park, New York City’s third largest park, in the northwestern Bronx, on Tuesday at about 12:45 p.m. EDT (5.45 p.m UK time) The site’s wide open spaces, used for football and cricket matches, make it a practical landing area.

A tip of the hat to roving field personnel Eric Sinclair and Anne Zender for arranging this spontaneous publicity for BLIMP WEEK, and of course, we’d like to thank the fun-loving grandpas in the venerable British rock band too. Don’t hurt your backs, boys! And don’t forget to tell ’em it’s BLIMP WEEK!

Members of the press who may find themselves at the event will be encouraged to sing the Blimp Week theme song allong with Mr. Jagger, in a hearty chorus of good-fellowship and old-boy vaudeville.

Here’s a bit more from the German press:

UPDATE: The Blimp Guys were behind this ship.
