The Rolling Stones announce UK stadium tour

The Rolling Stones have announced five UK stadium shows for later this year.

The legendary rockers will play London Stadium (May 22), Manchester Old Trafford football stadium (June 5), Edinburgh BT Murrayfield Stadium (June 9), Cardiff Principality Stadium (June 15) and London's Twickenham Stadium (June 19) in part two of their No Filter tour, which began last year. 

Tickets for the band's first UK dates since British Summer Time Hyde Park 2013 go on sale at 9am on Friday.

Produced by Concerts West/AEG Presents, the tour kicks off in Croke Park, Dublin on May 17.

Keith Richards said: “It’s such a joy to play with this band there’s no stopping us, we’re only just getting started really.”   

Mick Jagger said: ‘‘This part of the No Filter tour is really special for the Stones. We are looking forward to getting back onstage in the summer and playing to fans in the UK and Ireland. It’s always exhilarating going to cities we haven’t played for quite a while and also some new venues for us like Old Trafford and The London Stadium.’’

Charlie Watts said: “The Stones audience is the glue that keeps us together. The best and most satisfying moment is when you are reaching the end of the show and they are all going nuts.”

Ronnie Wood added: “When I look out at the sea of people when we play all I can see is smiles. It’s heart-warming and I’m glad we make people happy. Music makes me happy, and it makes them happy…. it's infectious.”
