Rolling Stones Under 24 Hour Armed Guard During South America Tour
According to a report from the Dailey Mirror, The Rolling Stones are under 24-hour armed guard after a worker at one of their shows in Argentina was shot dead. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood, and Charlie Watts are being escorted around Buenos Aires with military-style security after a contractor working the show at the La Plata Stadium was killed in an attempted robbery.
The worker was leaving with his colleagues after the concert and was shot dead as a gang tried to ambush them in an effort to steal the stadium’s drinks takings. A 31-year-old Colombian man was later arrested.
The Stones, who are playing across South America on their America Latina Ole tour, are now allegedly taking no chances with their safety and are traveling in separate cars with armed guards surrounding their hotel.
A source told the newspaper, “Wealthy personalities are always potential targets, but the band are kept safe and secure at all times by the best security personnel on the planet.”
There has been no comment from the Stones yet.
