Liam Gallagher and Florence + The Machine announced as The Rolling Stones’ Tour Supports

The biggest band playing the most anticipated shows of 2018, The Rolling Stones, has just dropped the bombshell that Liam Gallagher, The Vaccines, Richard Ashcroft, Florence + The Machine and others will be supporting them throughout the UK leg of their No Filter tour.

Kicking off with a two-night residency at London’s Stadium, The Rolling Stones will first be supported by the Godlike Genius, Liam Gallagher (May 22) with Florence + The Machine supporting the second London date (25).  The bands’ final May show, which takes place at Southampton’s St Mary’s Stadium, will see none other than The Vaccines taking up the reigns as their main support act (29).

As June rolls in, The Stones do too.  Their first live performance in June is set to take place at Coventry’s Ricoh Stadium, and their stage will be warmed up by ska legends, The Specials.  The Rolling Stones’ Coventry show takes place on June 2.

Both shows at Manchester’s Old Trafford Football Stadium (5) and Edinburgh’s BT Murrayfield Stadium (9) will have Richard Ashcroft as the main support act.  Ashcroft is the only act to have wrangled two support slots with the iconic rock n’ roll band, and his homecoming Manchester show is sure to be one for the history books.

Following Ashcroft’s departure from the No Filter tour, the penultimate date at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium (15) will see Elbow filling in the big boots.  After the Cardiff date, the tour will again swing back around to London, however this time The Stones are performing their farewell as Twickenham Stadium (19) with none other than James Bay to see us off.
