Starz Sets Rolling Stones Documentaries

Starz will strike a music chord with two documentaries in January featuring The Rolling Stones, the network said Wednesday.

On Jan. 15 Starz will air The Rolling Stones Olé! Olé! Olé!: A Trip Across Latin America, which features an intimate insight into the rock group’s 2016 tour through 10 Latin American cities, while on Jan. 22 the network will air Havana Moon which features the group’s full concert from Havana – the first time a foreign rock band has ever played Cuba, said network officials.

Both documentaries will also be available for download and streaming via the Starz app beginning January 15, 2017, said Starz.
