The Rolling Stones will squeeze in a four-show tour of Australia and New Zealand this April, just weeks before they launch a mammoth European tour.
The band will wrap its North American run March 12 in Florida, then head to Japan later in the month for two gigs at the Tokyo Dome. The downunder dates are slotted for April 11-18, with shows booked in Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland and Wellington.
The Stones will do outdoor stadium gigs in all cities except Melbourne, where they’ll play the more “up-close and intimate” Rod Laver Arena.
The A Bigger Bang world tour visited 42 North American cities in 2005, and the group has already hit nearly 20 more this year, including a run through South America. The upcoming summer Euro leg will stretch for 36 shows.
