Exclusive: Rolling Stones European tour dates announced!
The band include five dates across the UK and Ireland
The band include five dates across the UK and Ireland.

The long-awaited tour schedule for The Rolling Stones 2006 European tour has today been announced, with over 30 dates confirmed at this early stage.

Opening Saturday May 27, 2006 at Barcelona's Olympic Stadium, the exhaustive tour will take in the usual haunts on Europe's arena run, including a date at the soon-to-be-opened new Wembley Stadium in London on August 20.

Playing over twenty countries during the four month run, the 'A Bigger Bang' tour will call at Holland, Germany, France, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Norway, UK, Poland, Austria and The Czech Republic. Tickets for these concerts are due to go on sale from December 3rd and, as with the US tour, will give fans the chance to purchase tickets at every price level - including the famed stage-side perches. The average ticket cost is expected to weigh in at 70 Euros.

"The band is redefining the concert experience-there is nothing even comparable to the thrill of being onstage with the Rolling Stones and seeing a stadium show from the band's perspective," said Michael Cohl, tour director, "For fans this will be the greatest tour yet''

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood & Charlie Watts also confirmed plans to play Russia, Greece, Croatia, Serbia & Montenegro, Portugal, Denmark, Switzerland and Ireland, although venue and/or sale date is not immediately forthcoming.

'A Bigger Bang' world tour opened in Boston in August 2005, where the band debuted their elaborate stage production to a feverish audience. AS well as the audience integration with the set, what is describes as 'an amazing technological extension of the famous "second stage" feature of recent tours' is also wowing fans.
