The Rolling Stones have been booked to play four shows later this year, including two nights at London's O2 Arena, according to US sources.

US music industry magazine Billboard quotes a source this morning (August 30) who claims that the band will play four dates in November, two at London's O2 Arena and two at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

The source also details that the gigs will be put on by British entrepreneur Richard Branson and Australian promoter Paul Dainty and reports that the band will be paid a cool $25 million (£15.8 million) for the four shows.

Earlier this week, it came to light that The Rolling Stones have been recording in a studio in Paris according to a tweet by the legendary band's frontman, Mick Jagger.

Last week the rocker wrote that they had spent the week in a recording studio in France and also posted a picture of him holding a guitar. He said: "Had fun in the Paris studio this week!"

Earlier this summer Jagger confirmed that The Rolling Stones will play together this autumn.

The band celebrated the 50th anniversary of their first ever gig in July and when asked by the Evening Standard when the band would next perform live together Jagger replied: "This autumn...".

Speaking at the opening of The Rolling Stones: 50 photography exhibition at London's Somerset House – which closed today (August 27) - he added: "You will definitely be seeing us all together soon. It's been great fun being back together and there are a lot of memories in here. I can't believe it's been 50 years. We've been hanging out together, seeing quite a bit of each other and we want to do some gigs."
