Jagger also expressed his excitement on twitter as he posted, "Can't wait to be back in Australia after all this time & what a buzz to be the first to play at the Adelaide Oval!"

Guitarist Ronnie Wood also tweeted, "Excited to be heading to Australia in March 2014 to open the Adelaide Oval with @RollingStones #StonesAdelaide"
