Rolling Stones took Havana – Swedish YLE

The legendary rock group the Rolling Stones gave on Friday evening a historic concert in the Cuban capital of Havana.

Giant concert was free, and the group played their best known songs like Jumpin ‘Jack Flash, Sympathy for the Devil, Angie, Paint it Black and Satisfaction – music that has been banned in Cuba before.

The British band with Mick Jagger, Keith Richards at the forefront became world famous in the 60′s and most of the members are already over 70 years old. Jagger, 72, Keith Richards also 72, and Charlie Watts, 74. Ronnie Wood’s 68th

The New Times

The crowd went wild when Jagger spoke to the Spanish.

– I have a feeling that times really are changing, he said. Is not that right?

And the audience responded by shouting “Rollings! Rollings!”

On the VIP grandstand was seen celebrities like supermodel Naomi Campbell, actor Richard Gere and artist Jimmy Buffet. The event was also President Raoul Castro’s son Alejandro Castro.

Rumors that the Rolling Stones would play in Cuba was begun in October, but it was only a few weeks ago as a concert plans were confirmed.
