Rolling Stones Announce 2016 Latin American Tour
As expected, the Rolling Stones' latest blockbuster world tour will make its next series of stops in Latin America next year.
Dubbed the America Latina Olé Tour, the band's sojourn into the southern hemisphere currently consists of a dozen dates, starting Feb. 3 in Santiago, Chile, and continuing through March 14 in Mexico City. In between, they'll deliver their first-ever concerts in Peru, Uruguay and Colombia.
"We love playing Latin America and are excited about going to some cities for the first time," Mick Jagger said in a press release. "The audiences are among some of the best in the world — they bring incredible energy."
"We had a great time performing in stadiums last summer in the US and are excited to come to Latin America for the first time in 10 years. The fans are amazing," added Keith Richards.
The America Latina Olé shows, which will debut a new stage "customized especially for the Latin American fans," appear to clear the Stones' tour docket for now, though when Richards announced the band's plans to tour the region, he hinted that further dates were a distinct possibility. "[We’ve] got South America lined up in February, Buenos Aires, Peru," he said in September. "And after that, I know what the Stones tours are like, they tend to get extended."
