The veteran band will play at Holland's Pinkpop Festival on June 7 and Belgium's TW Classic Festival on June 28.

Both dates come under the umbrella of the band's 14 On Fire tour. Speaking about the bookings, frontman Mick Jagger said: "I love festivals in the summertime and can't wait for the tour to get to Europe."

Keith Richards said: "Let’s keep this show on the road… the band are in top form so I’m really looking forward to getting back to Europe."

The band promise to play a set including classic tracks such as 'Gimme Shelter', 'Paint It, Black', 'Jumpin' Jack Flash', 'Tumbling Dice' and 'It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll (But I Like It)'.
