AUDIOSLAVE MAKE HISTORY
AUDIOSLAVE are set to become the first US rock group to perform outdoors in Cuba.

The band, who are currently touring the US in support of their upcoming second album ’Out Of Exile’, have announced that they will play a special gig on May 6 at La Tribuna in Havana.

The concert will be free and open to the Cuban public. In the past, the open air venue has accommodated up to one million people.

The first open air concert by a US rock band in Cuba was authorised by the US Treasury Department and the Instituto Cubano de la Musica.

A statement from Audioslave said: “Kids are the same all over the world, and we are extremely proud and excited to bring rock 'n' roll to the youth of Cuba. It's all about the music, and free expression of music crosses all barriers. This is a rare opportunity, and we are grateful and honored to have the support of both countries.”

As previously reported by NME.COM, Audioslave release the Rick Rubin-produced 'Out Of Exile' on May 23, followed by a single 'Be Yourself' on May 30.
