Rumours are rife that The Rolling Stones are set to headline Croke Park this summer, following Coldplay and U2's sell-out gigs.

The Rolling Stones last played in Ireland in 2007, when they became one of only two bands in history – U2 is the other – to headline Slane Castle twice.

It's expected that the legendary rockers will headline Croke Park in June, according to reports from The Sun newspaper. Although the news has not been officially confirmed.

The GAA headquarters already has two sell-out concerts confirmed with Coldplay headlining on June 8 and U2 bringing their Joshua Tree 30th Anniversary tour to the Jones Road stadium on July 22.

Croke Park is allowed to hold three concerts each summer under a 2009 agreement with local residents.

It's believed that the self-described 'Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Band in the World' are launching a major new tour in 2017, one that will take in the biggest arenas on the planet.

Fans in Europe are now awaiting confirmation of a rumoured European tour, which many think could be their last.

It's rumoured that Paris, Barcelona, Vienna, Oslo and Nijmegen in Holland are also rumoured to be on the agenda alongside the Dublin gig.

The Rolling Stones first toured Ireland in 1965, just before they became global superstars with their hit I Can't Get No Satisfaction.
