The Rolling Stones Announce America Latina Olé Tour
The Rolling Stones will return to the road in early 2016 for their first tour of Latin America in 10 years. Dubbed “America Latina Olé,” the tour will focus on massive soccer stadiums.
Santiago, Chile’s Estadio Nacional hosts the tour opener on February 3. Then the Stones head to Buenos Aires, Argentina for three performances at Estadio Único Ciudad de La Plata. Next up is one-night stands in Montevideo, Uruguay and Rio before the band heads to Sao Paulo for two shows at Estadio do Morumbi. The tour concludes with stops in Lima, Peru; Bogota, Colombia and Mexico City.
The Rolling Stones’ visits to Uruguay, Peru and Colombia and the city of Porto Alegre are the band’s first to those cities and countries. “We love playing Latin America and are excited about going to some cities for the first time! The audiences are among some of the best in the world, they bring incredible energy!” said Mick Jagger. “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.
