The Rolling Stones have announced appearances at two European festivals.

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)'.

The Rolling Stones kicked off the 14 On Fire tour with their first ever gig in the Middle East in February. They are currently making their way through Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

The Rolling Stones will play:

Pinkpop Festival, Holland (June 7)
