The Rolling Stones: Hola Cuba!
Thank you for welcoming us to your beautiful country, expressed in a message to Cuba the members of the British band the Rolling Stones, which will perform in Havana on March 25 in the area around the capital’s Ciudad Deportiva.
We are very happy to play for you; we have played in many amazing places in the world, but this concert in Cuba will be historic for us and hopefully for you too, they confessed in a video posted on their YouTube account.
This free presentation, known as Concert for Amity, will take place on Friday at 8:30 p.m., with the special participation of Cuba’s Entrevoces Choir, directed by professor and National Music Award winner Digna Guerra.
The London band, founded in 1962 by Brian Jones, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Bill Wyman, Charlie Watts and Ian Stewart will complete in the Cuban capital its Ole Tour that began two months ago in Santiago de Chile.
This will be the first open-air concert by a British group to be held in Cuba and it is expected that "Their Satanic Majesties" -as they are also known- will play the most outstanding pieces of its internationally famous discography.
