Nuneaton Telegraph - - FRONT PAGE - It’s al­ways ex­hil­a­rat­ing go­ing to cities we haven’t played for quite a while.

THEY’RE one of the big­gest bands on the planet – and they’re com­ing to Coven­try!

The Rolling Stones will play the Ricoh Arena this sum­mer as part of their No Fil­ter tour.

It’s a mas­sive coup for the sta­dium and the city in what has al­ready been a stel­lar year for an­nounce­ments.

Coven­try has snagged the UK City of Cul­ture for 2021 while this sum­mer BBC Mu­sic will bring their Big­gest Week­end band­wagon into the War Me­mo­rial Park with the likes of Liam Gal­lagher, Stereo­phon­ics and Snow Pa­trol.

The Rolling Stones will per­form on home turf in May and June for two con­certs in Lon­don as well as gigs in Manch­ester, Ed­in­burgh, Cardiff - and now the cities of Coven­try and Southamp­ton have been added to the lineup.

The Coven­try con­cert will take place at the Ricoh on Sat­ur­day, June 2 while the Southamp­ton gig will be played at St Mary’s Sta­dium on May 29.

They will also make stops in Dublin, Ber­lin, Mar­seille, Stuttgart, Prague and War­saw.

The sec­ond part of the Stones – No Fil­ter tour will see fans treated to hits such as Paint It Black and Brown Sugar and each night they will in­clude a cou­ple of un­ex­pected tracks and ran­domly se­lected sur­prises.

The band will kick off at Dublin’s Croke Park on May 17 ahead of the Lon­don Sta­dium on May 22.

They will play Manch­ester’s Old Traf­ford foot­ball sta­dium on June 5, Ed­in­burgh’s BT Mur­ray­field sta­dium on June 9 and Cardiff’s
