Rolling Stones announce European festival shows

The Rolling Stones will play a pair of festival shows in Europe in June, the first dates announced for an early summer tour on the continent.

The Stones will headline the Pinkpop Festival in Holland on June 7 and the TW Classic Festival in Belgium on June 28 as part of their 14 On Fire tour.

"I love festivals in the summertime and can't wait for the tour to get to Europe," said Mick Jagger.

"Let's keep this show on the road,” added Keith Richards. “The band are in top form, so I'm really looking forward to getting back to Europe.”

Tickets for both festivals go on sale this Saturday, March 15 at 10am local time.

The band will be playing more major shows in Europe in May and June, and these will be announced over the next two weeks.

The Stones will perform the final date of their Asian shows this Saturday in Singapore before hitting Australia and New Zealand.
