Early this spring, The Rolling Stones made headlines the world over when it did something that no band has ever done. The band became the first rock act to ever perform a free, live show in the city of Havana. Now this fall audiences will be able to experience that landmark concert for themselves when Eagle Rock Entertainment releases Havana Moon: The Rolling Stones Live in Cuba.
The new Rolling Stones live recording, captured by award-winning film director Paul Dugdale, will be released in stores and online on Friday, November 11th.
One million people turned out for the concert, which was held the very same week that President Obama became the first United States President to visit Cuba in 88 years. His visit was touted by countless news agencies around the world as the “warm up act” for The Rolling Stones.
When the band took the stage, front man Mick Jagger addressed the crowd quoting fellow Bob Dylan as he said, “Finally the times are changing. Cuba, we are so happy to be here. The concert’s extensive set list featured many of the band’s biggest hits including: ‘Brown Sugar,’ ‘Jumpin’ Jack Flash,’ ‘It’s Only Rock N’ Roll,’ ‘Paint It Black,’ ‘Honky Tonk Women,’ ‘Start Me Up,’ and ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want,’ and ‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction),’ among many other songs. The complete track listing for the concert is noted below.
1) Jumpin’ Jack Flash
2) It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll (But I Like It)
3) Out of Control

10) Sympathy For The Devil

The band’s performance was hailed by the audience with at least one fan saying, “Wow, never ever did I think we would see this happen. Tonight has been a dream come true for me.”
That statement was echoed by another fan who said, “Simply fantastic – this is a moment I have been dreaming about for a really long time. I have just witnessed the most important concert in Cuba because this is The Rolling Stones.”
