Fans of The Rolling Stones will be pleased to hear the rockers are back in business and will be taking to the stage again this spring - the first time they have played in the UK for five years.

The band, who have been chart-toppers since they formed in 1962, will perform in the UK as part of their Stones - No Filter tour.

They will kick off the British leg on May 17th when Mick Jagger, 74, Keith Richards, 74, Charlie Watts, 76 and Ronnie Wood, 70, will play at Dublin's Croke Park. They will also perform at the London Stadium, Old Trafford Football Stadium in Manchester, BT Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh, Twickenham Stadium, and Principality Stadium in Cardiff, before heading to Europe in June.

Jagger said performing in Britain is "really special" for the group, having not played here since 2013.

"We are looking forward to getting back onstage 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," the veteran rocker stated.

Despite all the members being in their 70s now, the group will not let age get in their way of giving fans a show to remember, with Richards saying: "We're just getting started really."

Indeed, just last month The Rolling Stones won a Grammy award for their latest album Blue & Lonesome, showing they are still making waves in the music industry with their new material.

Tickets for the gigs go on sale (March 2nd), and are set to get snapped up straight away due to the band's popularity. Indeed, they are likely to require strong crowd barriers at their upcoming shows to make sure their fans stay safe.
