25 Amazing Photographs From The Rolling Stones’ Tour of the Americas ‘75, Seeing the Band Play to Over a Million People

The Rolling Stones’ Tour of the Americas ‘75 has been called “Pomp Rock,” and justifiably so. While the band’s previous tour of North America in the early 1970s was big, this one was massive; one of the largest tours undertaken by a band to that point.

It was dubbed The Tour of the Americas, as the band originally planned to play some South American dates, beginning in Mexico City on August 7, before playing Rio De Janeiro, Sao Paulo, and closing the tour on August 31 in Caracas, Venezuela. Unfortunately, those plans never came quite together, and it would be over twenty years before the Stones finally played in South America.

At the shows that did happen, the Stones ended up playing to over a million people (1,101,800) at 45 shows in 26 cities in 21 states (plus Washington D.C. and Canada). The tour grossed in excess of $10 million, a far cry from that first US tour that had opened almost 11 years ago, to the day, in San Bernardino.
