The concert, celebrating the band’s 60th anniversary, will be held at Anfield in June and Liverpool season ticket holders will have access to a presale for gig tickets.

The ban last played in the city in 1971 when they did two dates at Liverpool Empire Theatre in March that year.

At the time, guitarist Ronnie Wood was yet to join the band’s line-up alongside lead singer Mick Jagger and fellow guitarist Keith Richards.

On the Rolling Stones’ return to the city, a spokesperson for promoters AEG Presents said: “Liverpool stands proudly as one of the world’s greatest music cities.

“Anfield is more than a stadium. It brings with it a great history and arguably the greatest atmosphere of any venue in the world. The Stones at Anfield on June 9 is unmissable.”

The band played their first gig back in 1962, at the Marquee Club in London, and have gone on to sell more than 200 million records worldwide over the subsequent 60 years.
