It's been 12 long years since The Rolling Stones last toured the UK, but they're coming back!

Mick Jagger and his pals announced plans to head out on their first UK trip since 2006 today (February 26).

They will play five stadium shows as part of their 'No Filter' tour in May and June.

"It's such a joy to play with this band," said Keith Richards. "We're only just getting started really."

Their last UK show was five years ago, when they headlined Glastonbury and the BST Festival.

They have also promised all the hits including 'Satisfaction', 'Paint It Black' and 'Start Me Up', but that each night would feature "a couple of unexpected tracks and randomly selected surprises from their formidable arsenal of songs".

"We are looking forward to getting back onstage in the summer," said Mick Jagger. "It's always exhilarating going to cities we haven't played for quite a while."

"The Stones audience is the glue that keeps us together," added drummer Charlie Watts. "The best and most satisfying moment is when you are reaching the end of the show and they are all going nuts."

However, don't expect the tickets to be cheap. While prices have yet to be revealed, the cheapest seats for last year's tour started at €99 (£86).

Fan club members will be able to buy tickets for the UK dates from Tuesday (February 27), with the general sale starting on Friday (March 2).
