The Gimme Shelter rockers - made up of Sir Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood - will also visit Manchester, Edinburgh and Cardiff this summer, as part of the second leg of their hugely popular No Filter Tour.
The last time the Paint It Black rockers played the UK was at their iconic performance at Glastonbury's Pyramid Stage in 2013.

The legendary outfit also sold out two unforgettable nights at London's Hyde Park- 44 years after they played the landmark location for free.
Guitarist Keith Richards said: “It’s such a joy to play with this band there’s no stopping us, we’re only just getting started really.”
Mick Jagger said: ‘‘This part of the No Filter tour is really special for the Stones. We are looking forward to getting back onstage in the summer and playing to fans in the UK and Ireland.
"It’s always exhilarating going to cities we haven’t played for quite a while and also some new venues for us like Old Trafford and The London Stadium.’’
Drummer Charlie said: “The Stones audience is the glue that keeps us together. The best and most satisfying moment is when you are reaching the end of the show and they are all going nuts.”
Bassist and rhythm guitarist Ronnie added: “When I look out at the sea of people when we play all I can see is smiles. It’s heart-warming and I’m glad we make people happy. Music makes me happy, and it makes them happy ... its infectious."
Tickets for the shows, which are sponsored by Jeep, go on general sale on Friday 2 March.
