Rolling Stones announce South American tour

The Rolling Stones have announced their first South American tour in a decade.

The 12-date América Latina Olé tour will begin in Santiago, Chile on February 3 and will include multiple shows in Buenos Aires and Sao Paulo.

“We love playing Latin America, and are excited about going to some cities for the first time!,” says Mick Jagger. “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,” adds Keith Richards, “and are excited to come to Latin America for the first time in 10 years. The fans are amazing.”

Tickets for the tour will go on sale starting November 9 via the band’s website.

On November 20, The Rolling Stones will release “From The Vault: Live In Leeds Roundhay Park 1982” on DVD and Blu-ray.

The finale of the band’s 1982 European tour in support of “Tattoo You” also marked pianist Ian Stewart’s last show before his passing in 1985 and the group’s final live performance for 7 years.
