MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Ahead of their 11th concert in the state, Gov. Mark Dayton has declared Wednesday, June 3, 2015 to be “The Rolling Stones Day” in Minnesota.

The British band’s first concert in the state was in 1964 at the now-closed Excelsior Amusement Park. Their concert at TCF Bank Stadium Wednesday night is expected to draw thousands of fans.

Ahead of a gloomy forecast for the evening, concert organizers did declare that the performance would go on as scheduled, rain or shine.
