Rolling Stones detail 2016 South American tour

The Rolling Stones have announced a 2016 South American tour.

The run of 12 dates kicks off in Santiago, Chile on February 3 and wraps up with a show in Mexico City on March 14.

Frontman Mick Jagger says: “It’s got to be 10 years since we played Latin America. It’s a really long time. We’ve never been to Columbia, Peru or Uruguay. We’re so looking forward to playing there.

Keith Richards adds: “After all this time, finding a fresh horizon is pretty interesting.”

The Stones released a restored 3DVD and Blu-ray set titled From The Vault: Live At The Tokyo Dome 1990 last month. They’re expected to start work on their first studio material since 2005’s A Bigger Bang in the coming months.
