Rolling Stones Play For First Time In Cuba

The Rolling Stones have performed their first ever show in Cuba to an estimated audience of 1.3 million.

The Stones are the biggest act in the world to play in Cuba since President Obama opened trade with the communist nation for the first time in 50 years.

‘Jumping Jack Flash’ became the first Stones song ever played live in Cuba. The original song was released just six years after John F. Kennedy started the trade embargo in 1962.

Mick Jagger told the audience “We know that years back it was hard to hear our music in Cuba, but here we are playing. I also think the times are changing.”

The Stones performed for free for their Cuban fans at the Havana Sports City football field. Half a million count it into the venue with the remainder of the audience watching on screens from around the city.
