The Rolling Stones have confirmed they will restart their European tour in July.
The dates, meant to start in Barcelona on May 27, now kick off in Milan on July 11.
The band’s plans were thrown into confusion after guitarist Keith Richards was hospitalised when he fell from a tree. After brain operation, he is now recuperating at home.
There will be 21 stadium dates in 11 countries across Europe – and these shows will be all the Stones will be doing in the summer of 2006.
The new tour itinerary is as follows:
Milan San Siro (July 11)
Vienna Ernst Happel (14)
Munich Olympiastadion (16)
Hanover Arena (19)
Berlin Olympiastadion (21)
Koln Rhein-Energie Stadion (23)

All tickets purchased for the previous dates are valid.
