Mick Jagger is in Cuba, which is news that may be as small as one man’s vacation or as tremendous as a future Rolling Stones concert.
The Guardian cites a report from Granma, the country’s communist newspaper, which states the legendary rock frontman is in the midst of preparing for a Latin America tour.
Part of that research means touring Havana for a venue that might house a rather raucous return of classic rock music to the country.
Granma states: “The British musician’s presence in Havana could be related to the concert the band want to hold on the island as part of their Latin American tour; news of which was revealed in an interview with the group’s guitarist Keith Richards, who mentioned the possibility of performing in Cuba in March 2016, in the Latinoamericano Stadium in Havana.”
Now The Guardian does note that the Rolling Stones have made something or an appearance recently in Cuba.
According to the report, “Stones bassist Darryl Jones and Bernard Fowler, a backing singer with the group, performed in Havana in February with the group The Dead Daisies.”
And as noted, rock music in general has seen more of a wide acceptance in the previously reclusive nation over more recent years.
TravelPulse’s Josh Lew recently opined that Pope Francis’ visit to Cuba put the country once again at the forefront of the American consciousness.
We imagine the Rolling Stones flirting with holding a concert in Havana will only further invigorate a tourism interest that is nearing a fevered pitch.
