The Rolling Stones will be playing more major shows in Europe in May, June and July, and these will be announced over the next week.
Mick Jagger commented: "I can't wait for the tour to hit Europe. It's a great time of the year to be playing and the tour is a good mix of festivals, stadiums and arenas. See you there!"
Keith Richards added: “Let’s keep this show on the road …the band are in top form so I’m really looking forward to getting back to Europe.”
