The Rolling Stones will perform a historic free concert in Havana, Cuba later this month, in a show titled “Concert For Amity” that the band describes as a “landmark event.”
According to a press release, the Mar. 25 performance at the Ciudad Deportiva de la Habana will mark the first open air concert in Cuba by a British rock band. The show has been in the works for “several months,” and arrives days after President Obama’s visit to Cuba.
“We have performed in many special places during our long career but this show in Havana is going to be a landmark event for us, and, we hope, for all our friends in Cuba too,” the band says in a statement.
The “Concert For Amity” arrives after the Stones performed a stadium tour in South America and Central America. The performed will be filmed by JA Digital, with Paul Dugdale directing.
