The emblematic lead singer of The Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, arrived in Havana on the weekend of October 4; where he visited historic sties and the Santa Isabel Hotel, in the city’s Historic Center, which has also welcomed other international figures from the world of music and rock and roll. According to a hotel employee, 72 year old Jagger arrived in the capital with one of his children and visited various evening establishments such as club Sangri La, in the municipality of Playa.
The Rolling Stones front man couldn’t go unnoticed in the streets of Old Havana, taking photos with numerous Cuban and foreign fans.
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.
Richards also noted that current Stones bass player Darryl Jones had a big influence on the band’s interest in playing in Cuba. Jones performed in Havana as part of the group The Dead Daisies last February.
