The Rolling Stones are heading to Australia.
The legendary 'Brown Sugar' band will tour down under for the first time in seven years in early 2014, including a date at the refurbished Adelaide Oval cricket ground on March 22.
The show will be part of the opening of the 70,000 seat stadium, which cost £300 million to build.
Lead singer and cricket fan Sir Mick Jagger said: ''It's great to be invited to open the historic Oval. We're really looking forward to this gig, it will be the first time we have been in Adelaide in nearly 20 years.''
Further dates in Australia and New Zealand are expected to be announced later this week.
The Rolling Stones played a number of 50 and Counting live shows in the US and UK this summer to mark their 50th anniversary of forming the group.
Mick, 70, later said he was blown away by the concerts and was eager to get back on the road again.
He said: ''This summer was really good for us. I feel really happy and I had a really fantastic time in the last year. It was a great ending at Glastonbury [festival] and Hyde Park [in London]. We were blown away. I'd love to do it again.''
Meanwhile, Keith is already planning the band's 60th anniversary tour.
He said: ''I've been hooked on everything once or twice in my life. The one thing I can't kick is playing with the Rolling Stones.
''All these zeros that keep zooming by ... 30, 40, 50 years. I don't really see any reason why there shouldn't be a 60th. Either that or we croak [die] on the job.''
