The historic show The Rolling Stones played in Cuba last spring will be released as a one-night only movie. Havana Moon: The Rolling Stones Live in Cuba will hit theaters on September 23.
In March, the Stones performed a free outdoor concert in Havana to cap off their south American tour, América Latina Olé Tour 2016, Reportedly, 1.2 million people showed up to see the band perform “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” “It’s Only Rock ’n Roll,” “Gimme Shelter,” “Brown Sugar,” “Satisfaction” and other classics.
“The Cuba show was simply amazing,” Mick Jagger told Rolling Stone. “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.”
“There’s the sun, the moon, the stars and the Rolling Stones,” added Keith Richards. “Seeing Cuba finally get the chance to rock out was special – a night to remember in Havana.”
Paul Dugdale, the man behind the Stones’ 2013 Hyde Park show, directed Havana Moon.
Although the U.S. restored relations with Cuba in late 2015, travel between the two countries remains restricted for now (via US Embassy). In the meantime, fans can catch a glimpse of the island city while listening to the Stones jam out.
