The Rolling Stones: 2016 tour documentaries coming to US television

A pair of documentaries tracing The Rolling Stones on tour in 2016 will see their US television premieres on Starz this month.

“¡Olé, Olé, Olé! A Trip Across Latin America” captures the group’s road trip across 10 Latin American cities last spring, combining live performances with behind the scenes footage as it culminates in the historic tour finale with a free show in Havana, Cuba.

The Starz premiere on Sunday, January 15 at 9 PM ET/PT follows the film’s debut in nearly 300 US theaters last month.

“Havana Moon” presents the Stones’ first-ever performance in Cuba before an estimated crowd of 1.2 million fans on March 25, 2016, marking the first open air concert in the country by a British rock band.

Following its worldwide debut in theaters last September and DVD release in November, Starz will bring the film to television for its US premiere on Sunday, January 22 at 9 PM ET/PT.

Last month, The Rolling Stones topped the UK and Australian charts with their covers album, “Blue & Lonesome.”

The group were also named the No. 5 Rock News Artist Of The Year as part of the 2016 hennemusic Rock News Awards.
