The Rolling Stones will kick off the second leg of their “A Bigger Bang” world tour at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough on Sept. 20, the band announced yesterday. The group, which apparently has a soft spot for Boston, began the tour last August with a pair of concerts at Fenway Park.

“A Bigger Bang,” already ranked the top moneymaker for the first half of 2006, is expected to become the biggest-grossing concert tour in history, according to Billboard magazine.

The Stones made the announcement via satellite from Paris, one of 20 European cities the group is playing prior to its return visit to the United States . An assortment of as-yet-unnamed “young, contemporary opening acts” will join the Stones stateside, according to the band’s website.

In addition to the Gillette Stadium date, the North American fall tour will include stops at stadiums and arenas in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Oakland, Seattle, Vancouver, and Halifax, Nova Scotia.

“Keith [Richards is] fine, his head’s better, he’s playing well and enjoying himself,” Mick Jagger says in a statement on the band’s website. The Stones’ guitarist required surgery for a head injury he sustained after falling from a tree while vacationing in Fiji in April, forcing the group to postpone the first 15 dates of its European tour. In June the Stones’ other guitarist, Ron Wood, checked into an alcohol rehab center, further delaying the European dates.

Jagger also promises some changes to the set list.

“We’ll have a variety of material ready so we can keep it fresh,” says the singer.
