Rolling Stones Latin America TourTwo different films—one documenting the Rolling Stones’ early 2016 tour of Latin America and the other a concert film shot at the band’s historic visit to Cuba at the end of that tour—will premiere in September. Havana Moon—The Rolling Stones Live in Cuba is a visual record of the band’s free performance at an outdoor venue for more than a million Cuban fans on March 25, 2016. It will premiere as a one-night-only event on September 23 at a number of theaters in the U.K. and other countries. Meanwhile, The Rolling Stones Olé Olé Olé!: A Trip Across Latin America will premiere at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, running from September 8-18. Both films are directed by Paul Dugdale.

Havana Moon, whose title comes from a Chuck Berry song, includes the current lineup of the Stones running through such classic rock staples as “Brown Sugar,” “Honky Tonk Women,” “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” “Paint It Black,” “Start Me Up,” “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” and “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.”

Musicscreen will distribute Havana Moon to more than a thousand screens throughout Europe, Australia, Russia, Japan and Latin America. The title is expected to be released on DVD and Blu-ray by Eagle Rock Entertainment.

The Havana concert, the first by a major rock band in the island nation, closed out the band’s Olé America Latina tour, the subject of Dugdale’s other new film, The Rolling Stones Olé Olé Olé!: A Trip Across Latin America.

The Stones are next scheduled to perform at the Desert Trip concerts taking place over two weekends in October, as well as a date in Las Vegas, NV. Other artists set for the festival are Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Roger Waters and The Who. The Stones are also the subject of Rolling Stones’ Exhibitionism, which has been described as a “traveling museum of memorabilia.” The exhibit has already appeared in London and will move to New York in November.
