The Rolling Stones will play Mexico City during the band’s 2016 Latin American tour.
That news, anticipated by rumors among local Stones fans, was confirmed by Mexican promoter CIE President Alejandro Soberón on a radio show Tuesday morning (Nov. 3) and subsequently reported by the business news website CNN Expansión and other Mexican media.
The concert, planned for March, according to Soberón, will be the group’s first in Mexico City since its 2006 A Bigger Bang tour.
The Stones are also confirmed to play their first concert in Peru, and perform in Colombia and Argentina.
Wide speculations that the band will also play in Cuba during the upcoming Latin American tour were made after Mick Jagger was spotted in Havana in October. A representative for The Stones would only comment at the time that the singer was touring the city on vacation with one of his children.
More details on the Mexico City date were expected to be released by this weekend.
