The Rolling Stones

The Rolling Stones have announced their support acts for their UK stadium tour.

Former Oasis singer Liam Gallagher will open proceedings at London Stadium on Tuesday 22nd May, while 2015 Glastonbury headliner Florence & The Machine will play the same venue on Friday 25th May.

Indie band The Vaccines support The Stones at Southampton St Mary’s Stadium on Tuesday 29th May, while The Specials will play in their native Coventry at the Ricoh Stadium on Saturday 2nd June.

Richard Ashcroft – who sampled the Andrew Loog Oldham orchestra version of The Rolling Stones’ ‘The Last Time’ on the Verve’s 1997 no.1 ‘Bitter Sweet Symphony – is special guest at two dates on the tour; Manchester Old Trafford Stadium (Tuesday 5th June) and Edinburgh BT Murrayfield Stadium (Sat 9th June).

Elbow and James Bay play Cardiff Principality Stadium (Friday 15th June) and London Twickenham Stadium (Tuesday 19th June) respectively.

"It's a dream come true to be asked to open for the mighty Rolling Stones - the best Rock n Roll band EVER," says Liam Gallagher.

The Specials’ Lynval Golding comments: “I went to school in Gloucester & was very aware that Brian Jones was a local hero from Cheltenham although I never got to see him play. I did, however, get to go to Hyde Park for what turned out to be a memorial for him.

|Years later in NY, I was introduced to my guitar hero Keith Richards by Dave Jordan. Keith brought me a bag of guitar effects & I was so in awe that I couldn’t speak about all the things I wanted to - Brian, Hyde Park, how The Stones had influenced me, I couldn’t even say thank you for the effects pedals!

“Years later, this little black kid now gets to share the stage in what became his home town of Coventry with the legends that are The Stones! - Funny old life!!”
