The Rolling Stones to tour Latin America in 2016

The Rolling Stones have announced that they're to hit the road in 2016, with a tour of Latin America.

The news comes a few days after Keith Richards said that he'd like the band to record their new album next April, with the tour dates slotted in nicely before his proposed date. The guitarist released his solo album in September, but it's been ten years since the release of Rolling Stones latest album, 2005's 'A Bigger Bang'.

The 'America Latina Ole' tour gets underway in February, taking in seven countries including a date at Rio De Janerio's iconic world cup football stadium the Maracana. The dates are as follows:

  • Santiago, Chile - Estadio Nacional (February 3)
  • Buenos Aires, Argentina - La Plata Stadium (7)
  • Buenos Aires, Argentina - La Plata Stadium (10)
  • Buenos Aires, Argentina - La Plata Stadium (13)
  • Montevideo, Uruguay - Centenario Stadium (16)
  • Rio de Janerio, Brazil - Maracana Stadium (20)
  • Sao Paulo, Brazil - Morumbi (24)
  • Sao Paulo, Brazil - Morumbi (27)
  • Porto Alegre, Brazil - Beira Rio Stadium (March 2)
  • Lima, Peru - Estadio Monumental (6)
  • Bogota, Colombia - Estadio El Campin (10)
  • Mexico City, Mexico - Foro Sol (14)

Richards also recently commented that drugs "never did anything for my creativity," despite his notorious party lifestyle, adding on a recent episode of Desert Island Discs that it took becoming a grandfather to push him to grow up, and that fans only see one side his personality.

In a comment that seems a little obvious in light of the tour announcements, Richards recently denied that the band would be splitting up anytime soon. "People have said we're splitting up since every tour from about 1975," he said.

"If anybody should be interested in when we're going to quit, it should be the Stones, and they're not particularly interested in doing so."
