Prin­ci­pal­ity Sta­dium on June 15. They will wrap up the UK leg of the tour at Twick­en­ham sta­dium on June 19. Front­man Mick Jag­ger, 74, said: “This part of the No Fil­ter tour is re­ally spe­cial for the Stones. “We are look­ing for­ward to get­ting back on stage 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.” Gui­tarist Richards, 74, added: “It’s such a joy to play with this band. There’s no stop­ping us, we’re only just get­ting started re­ally.”

The Rolling Stones last played in the UK in the sum­mer of 2013 when they head­lined the Pyra­mid stage at Glas­ton­bury, fol­lowed by two sold-out shows in Lon­don’s Hyde Park.

Gui­tarist and bassist Ron­nie Wood, 70, said: “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.”

Drum­mer Char­lie Watts, 76, added: “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.”

Ticket de­tails have yet to be con­firmed but there are re­ports they could go on sale at 9am next Thurs­day.
