HistoryEdit

On 17 September 2015, the Spanish newspaper El Mundo revealed that the Rolling Stones were (at the time) in final negotiations to perform for the very first time in Cuba, at the end of March 2016 (on 20 or 21 March). The location would be Havana and the venue the Estadio Latinoamericano (Latin American Stadium), a facility with capacity for 55,000 people. Keith Richards confirmed the negotiations with the Cubans, adding that Cuba had taken it seriously, following the opening of embassies in the United States and the Pope's (then) upcoming visit to Havana. It was also reported that the Stones' bassist Darryl Jones had influenced the decision to play in Cuba.[4][5][6][7]

On 5 November 2015, it was announced that the Rolling Stones would be going on tour in Latin America in 2016 for the first time since their A Bigger Bang Tour in February 2006, the name of this 13-date stadium tour being "América Latina Olé Tour 2016".[3] The tour would include their second ever show in Chile (the first being during the Voodoo Lounge Tour in February 1995) and their first show in São Paulo since the Bridges to Babylon Tour in April 1998. The Stones were also due to play their first ever shows in Uruguay, Peru, Colombia and Cuba.

Later in November 2015, another show was rumoured to occur also on 20 or 21 March 2016 at the Estadio Olimpico Felix Sanchez in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic[7] but this show was never confirmed. On 1 March 2016, The Stones confirmed their first ever show in Cuba due to occur on 25 March 2016, to be a free concert, their first ever in the Caribbean and the first open air concert in the country by a British rock band.[8] The band played at, but not inside, the Coliseo de la Ciudad Deportiva de La Habana. Dubbed the "Concert for Amity," it broke the previous record of the Italian singer Zucchero Fornaciari who performed to a crowd of nearly 70,000 goers in 2012.[9][10][11]
