With songs like “Sympathy for the Devil” and “Honky Tonk Women” The Rolling Stones help audiences relive the golden rock ‘n’ roll age in their film, premiering at TIFF, “The Rolling Stones Olé Olé Olé! : A Trip Across Latin America”.
Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood, and Charlie Watts tour Latin America and perform in countries they never have before. For the first time in history they play in Havana, Cuba — a show that includes an overlap with Obama and a ban from the Pope, who refuses to allow the band play on a religious holiday. Nevertheless the band push onward and upward to make it all happen.
Besides Cuba, the legends travel to nine other Latin American countries, including Argentina, Mexico, and Chile. The film shows Rolling Stone fans who are willing to do anything for even just a glimpse of the band. Fans were dressed head to toe in tongues, belly tops, and ripped jeans, not to mention almost every fan had Mick’s dance moves down.
Throughout the film you get a closer look at the musicians. Keith Richards has a sign on his desk that says, ‘Mr. Wonderful,’ while Ronnie Wood demonstrates his artistic abilities in Sao Paulo.
Director Paul Dugdale, who previously worked with The Rolling Stones, captures the essence of the band while demonstrating a fresh perspective on these rock legends who have been together for over fifty years.
Make sure you tune in here LIVE tonight at approx. 8:30 p.m. ET as Rick Campanelli catches up with Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood at the TIFF premiere at Roy Thomson Hall.
