The Rolling Stones are to play a surprise gig in Paris tonight as a warm-up for their forthcoming dates in London and New Jersey.

The group made the announcement on Twitter, writing: "The Rolling Stones are playing a short warm-up gig tonight, Thursday 25th Oct, in Paris." Newspaper Le Parisien reports that the show will take place at Trabendo. A small, 700-seat theatre in the Parc de la Villette area of Paris.

Tickets for the show will be available from 12pm local time today at Virgin Megastore on Paris's Champs Elysees. The band's Twitter stipulated that, "Names will be printed on the tickets. On presentation of photo ID at the venue, ticket holders will receive a wristband. Doors open at 8 pm… Mobile phones, cameras, video equipment and recording devices are strictly prohibited."

Earlier this week, guitarist Ronnie Wood told NME that the band are likely to play more than one low-key show. He said:

There’s going to be little club gigs that we’re gonna surprise ourselves to do as well, we’ll bung a few in next week or the week after, so look out for any Cockroaches gigs or whatever! I don’t know who we’ll be billed as but we’ll turn up somewhere and put a few to the test. Tiny, 200, 300 people kind of places.

Last week, The Rolling Stones announced two huge London dates for November. The rock legends will play London's O2 Arena on November 25 and 29 to celebrate their 50th anniversary. They will also be playing two nights at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey in the US on December 13 and 15. All the dates sold out in minutes.
