The Rolling Stones Shared Video From Their Free, Historic Concert In Cuba

On March 25, The Rolling Stones made history in Cuba as the first British band to ever perform an open-air concert there, and now the group has released a short video in honor of their latest accomplishment.

“Cuba’s got so much music, so many kinds of music, all of it brilliant — it was inevitable that we would play here one day,” legendary frontman Mick Jagger says during the clip’s opening, as the video shifts from footage of the band to images captured throughout Cuba.

Perhaps the best part of the clip is seeing the people of Cuba running toward the stage and getting ready to witness the iconic rock band perform. Cameras and phones are in the air, people are dancing — all in all, it looks like everybody involved had an incredible time, with The Rolling Stones performing for 1.2 million people. Check out the video above, as well as some choice tweets from the concert below.

With the opening of the bordering country to more Western culture, including Major Lazer’s performance earlier this month, as well as President Obama’s visit, hopefully this can be a start of a peaceful cultural exchange between Cuba and the United States.
