The Rolling Stones to Play Free Concert in Cuba

The Rolling Stones will play a free concert in Havana, Cuba, the band announced Tuesday.

Dubbed the “Concert for Amity,” the band will play at the Ciudad Deportiva de la Habana on March 25. It will be the largest act to play Cuba since the revolution in 1959.

“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 said.

The concert will be a part of the band’s America Latina Ole tour. They are also leading a musician-to-musician initiative through which much-needed musical instruments and equipment are being donated by major suppliers for the benefit of Cuban musicians.

The Stones are just the latest artists to make a move to visit the formerly isolated country. Filmmaking and TV shooting has been on the rise in the country in the past year.

The announcement comes right on the heels of President Barack Obama’s announcement that he’ll visit Cuba as well.
