In March this year, The Rolling Stones made history – they were the first rock band to play a free outdoor concert in Havana, Cuba. Hundreds of thousands of fans turned out for the monumental occasion, which came days after Barack Obama became the first serving US President to visit the country in 88 years. A big week for Cuba, and for the rock legends.
Sensing how important the gig would be, award-winning director Paul Dugdale went along and filmed it all, resulting in new concert film ‘Havana Moon’. The movie will premiere in cinemas around the world for one night only on September 23, but you can watch an exclusive clip of them playing ‘Out Of Control’, from the ‘Bridges To Babylon’ album, below.
“The Cuba show was simply amazing,” Stones frontman Mick Jagger said of the show afterwards. “It was an incredible moment; a huge sea of people for as far as the eye could see. You could feel the buzz of the enthusiasm from the crowd and that was for me the stand out moment.”
Guitarist Keith Richards added: “There’s the sun the moon the stars and The Rolling Stones. Seeing Cuba finally get the chance to rock out was special… A night to remember in Havana.”
The Rolling Stones Cuba concert film ‘Havana Moon’ is coming to cinemas across the UK for one-night-only on 23 September. Head to stonesincuba.com for more information and tickets.
