(December 17, 2015) – The Stones plan to heat up 2016 when they bring their 13-date “Olé” tour to Latin America beginning February 3. As of now, they plan to hit nine cities in seven countries (itinerary below), but they might tack on a Cuban or Dominican concert in late March if things can be negotiated.
The band has already gathered in London this month to toss around song ideas and to begin the embryonic stages of a new studio album, which they hope to release next year.
In other news, the individual Stones have remained productive – and reproductive – in recent months:
Keith, on the heels of his “Crosseyed Heart” release, played a two-song set at New York’s Apollo Theater on October 22, as part of the Jazz Foundation’s “Great Night in Harlem” event. (With the X-Pensive Winos behind him, he performed “Gimme Shelter” and “Happy.”)
Mick, meanwhile, is looking forward to the February 14 debut of “Vinyl,” the TV series he’s co-producing with Martin Scorsese for HBO.
And last but not least, 68-year-old Ronnie is looking forward to the debut of twins! He and his wife Sally have announced they’re expecting a couple of little Woodies round the middle of next year. Additionally, the proud papa-to-be hopped onstage at London’s Scala Theatre last night (December 16) to jam with Stones cohort Bernard Fowler on the old Faces tune, “Stay With Me.”
