Rolling Stones to tour Latin America in 2016

The Rolling Stones are heading to Latin America, but a highly rumored stop in Cuba is not on the schedule.

The British band announced Thursday they will be heading out on “The America Latina Ole” tour, kicking off Feb. 3 in Santiago, Cuba.

It will be the band’s first tour of Latin America in a decade.

Frontman Mick Jagger said in a statement that Latin American audiences “are among some of the best in the world, they bring incredible energy!”

The 12-date tour will include stops in Buenos Aires, Argentina; Rio De Janeiro; Sao Paulo; Lima, Peru; and Bogota, Colombia, before wrapping in Mexico City on March 14.

The tour, however, does not include a historical stop in Havana, Cuba, which was greatly speculated after Jagger had a surprise visit to the island last month.

The British rocker took in the sights of Havana on a private trip with one of his children and official Cuban media reported that he was also scouting out a possible location for the band’s Latin American tour.
