Rock icons The Rolling Stones have announced details of a huge tour of the UK and Ireland this summer, including a visit to Edinburgh’s Murrayfield Stadium on June 9.
The legendary band will kick off the tour with a show at Dublin’s Croke Park on May 17, followed by their first ever show at the London Stadium on May 22.
From there, they’ll head to Manchester’s Old Trafford Cricket Ground on June 5 before visiting Murrayfield Stadium on June 9 and then wrapping things up Cardiff’s Principality Stadium on June 15.
The Stones last played the UK five years ago – with headline performances at Glastonbury and the BST Festival – but they haven’t toured here for 12 years.
“We are looking forward to getting back onstage in the summer,” said frontman Mick Jagger. “It’s always exhilarating going to cities we haven’t played for quite a while.”
“The Stones audience is the glue that keeps us together,” added drummer Charlie Watts. “The best and most satisfying moment is when you are reaching the end of the show and they are all going nuts.”
Ticket prices for the Stones’ tour have yet to be revealed. Fan club members can purchase tickets for the UK dates from February 27, with the general sale starting on Friday.
