Rolling Stones to debut Havana Moon concert film in theaters

The Rolling Stones will debut their Cuban concert film, “Havana Moon”, in theaters worldwide on September 23.

The March 25, 2016 event saw the group perform their first-ever concert in Cuba during a groundbreaking free show before an estimated crowd of 1.2 million fans that also marked the first open air concert in the country by a British rock band.

Mick Jagger welcomed the massive crowd who had come to watch the historic show: “Finally the times are changing, Cuba we are so happy to be here,” and joked with his bandmates during the performance, describing them as “The Revolutionary Ronnie Wood…Charlie Che Watts….Compadre Keith Richards”

Named after a Chuck Berry song and directed by Paul Dugdale, “Havana Moon” features a setlist of classics including “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”, “It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll”, “Honky Tonk Women”, “Start Me Up”, “Brown Sugar” and “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.”

Tickets for “Havana Moon” will go on sale at the beginning of August; more details are available at
