Liam Gallagher, The Specials and Florence + The Machine are among the acts who will support the Rolling Stones on the UK leg of their tour.

Gallagher tweeted that it is a "dream come true" to open for the legendary rockers on the opening night of their No Filter tour in the London Stadium, hailing them as "the best Rock n Roll band EVER."

Florence + The Machine will take over support duties for their next show at the London Stadium, with The Vaccines (Southampton) and The Specials (Coventry) also doing one night each.

Florence Welch tweeted her excitement at being added to their bill, saying it is a "huge honour."

Former The Verve frontman Richard Ashcroft will open for the band for two nights (Manchester and Edinburgh), the only act to play more than one show with The Rolling Stones.

Elbow will perform a set in Cardiff, with James Bay taking to the stage for their final UK date in London on June 19 in Twickenham.

Bay posted on Twitter that it is "an absolute honour" to get the opportunity to open for them.
