The Rolling Stones have announced they will be performing across the UK and Europe this summer with a 60th-anniversary tour. 

The iconic rock band teased fans for the past week before finally sharing their news of the 'SIXTY' tour. 

The band will visit a number of venues across Europe including two in the UK, Anfield Stadium in Liverpool on June 9, and two nights in Hyde Park, London on June 25 and July 3.

The tour will also mark the band's first outing since the passing of the legendary drummer Charlie Watts in August 2021.

Tickets for the shows go on pre-sale Thursday and general sale on Friday via Ticketmaster

Sharing the exciting news on their Instagram Keith Richards said: "Sorry to keep you all hanging around, but the waiting is over, I’ve always said the best place for rock and roll is on being on stage with the Stones and this year is very special.

"Looking forward to rehearsing with Mick and Ronnie and some friends, the wheels are in motion. See you all very soon."
