The Rolling Stones to play free concert in Havana, Cuba.

The Rolling Stones to play free concert in Havana, Cuba.
 The Rolling Stones announced Tuesday that the historic Band will preform a free concert in Havana on March 25, becoming the most famous act to play Cuba since its 1959 revolution.
The Stones will play in Havana's Ciudad and will coincide with The  Presidents visit . The concert is projected to have a massive turn out in a country where the past regime  once persecuted their  citizens for even listening to rock music.
"We have performed in many special places during our long career but this show in Havana is going to be a landmark event for us, and, we hope, for all our friends in Cuba too," the band was quoted as saying. 
You have to remember forget art, literature, and music. The government banned large gatherings of people for any reason.  
"I'm definitely going to go," said Ivia Perez, 39. "It makes me think about being in high school, after the period of censorship. I listened to a lot of rock back then."
On the same ground breaking week as the visits by Obama and The Rolling Stones, the Tampa Bay Rays are set to play the first Major League Baseball exhibition game in Cuba. 
Cuban fans have been praying for a concert by "Los Rollings" since lead singer Mick Jagger visited Havana in October. 
The Havana "Concert for Amity" will signify the ending of the Stones' America Latina Ole tour through seven Latin American cities. The Stones will donate instruments and other assorted musical equipment  to Cuban musicians during their visit.
Which ever side of the political fence you hang your misguided trust on. The President will certainly add a layer of legitimacy to his new relations with Cuba, by this huge event. In the end, you may hate our President, I say it's only Rock and Roll and Cuba will like it.
