Rolling Stones to play Austin?

Rumor has it that the Rolling Stones will make an announcement next week that they will play Austin's Zilker Park on Sunday, Oct. 22. If this show comes to fruition, it will be the first time the Stones have introduced themselves to the live music capital. How is that possible? They've been touring for 80 years and the city of Austin was never an option? Better late than never I suppose. Let's just hope Keith Richards doesn't decide to go coconut-picking again between now and October.
