The Rolling Stones are set to play one show in New Zealand, concert promoter Frontier Touring has confirmed.

The announcement is welcome news for Kiwi fans hoping to see the British rockers in what is rumoured to be their last world tour.

Frontier Touring has confirmed a 2014 date will be set in the next few weeks.

The Rolling Stones - made up of Mick Jagger, Ronnie Wood, Keith Richards and Charlie Watts - last toured New Zealand in 2006.

Earlier today, concert promoters confirmed the ageing rockers would play at the 70,000-seat Adelaide Oval on March 22.

It will be the band's first appearance in Adelaide for almost 20 years and will officially reopen the Oval after a $535 million redevelopment.

"It's great to be invited by you to reopen the historic oval," lead singer Mick Jagger said in a video message yesterday.

"We're really looking forward to doing this gig. The first time we've been in Adelaide for almost 20 years.

"See you there."

Yesterday, Jagger put fans on alert by tweeting: "Watch out tomorrow ... should have some exciting gig news for you, check out"

Wood tweeted, "Thought you'd want to know that there's some exciting @RollingStones news coming tomorrow."

The group rocked stages across the US and the UK earlier this year to mark the band's 50th anniversary.

This is expected to be their last world tour. Mick Jagger is now 70 years old, Keith Richards 69, Charlie Watts 72 and Ronnie Wood 66.
