Rolling Stones to play Roskilde Festival

The Rolling Stones will headline the Roskilde Festival in Denmark on July 3.

Among the largest music festivals in Europe, the 2014 event will see close more than 160 acts perform, including Arctic Monkeys, Rob Zombie, Kasabian and others.

The stop is one of several European shows planned as part of the band’s 14 On Fire tour, including previously announced dates in Holland, Germany, Italy and Belgium.

The Stones recently postponed seven shows in Australia and New Zealand following the sudden death of Mick Jagger’s longtime girlfriend, L’Wren Scott; the dates are expected to be rebooked for this fall.

The next scheduled appearance by the group is the PinkPop Festival in Holland on June 7.
