“The Rolling Stones: Havana Moon” documents the group’s free 2016 concert at the Ciudad Deportiva de la Habana sports complex, which drew an estimated 500,000 attendees. The event took place five days after U.S. President Barack Obama’s first visit to the country.
“We think this is the perfect opportunity to bring the Rolling Stones to drive-in theatres everywhere for the first time ever,” said Bernadette McCabe, Cinelife’s executive Vice President. “The Rolling Stones are an iconic band and drive-in theatres will provide a unique experience for audiences everywhere.”
“Over half a million fans showed up for this gig. Standing in front of them was an emotional moment. They were seeing something they’d never seen before and hearing something they’d never heard before. I can see why this makes a great gig to ‘relive’ in the way it will be at Troxy. The atmosphere was electric. Cuba was beautiful.”
“We see the world from a Rolling Stone point of view and know that we’re privileged to have witnessed moments like Havana Moon. This gig signalled change and progress in Cuba, which has continued since we played in 2016.”
‘Havana Moon’ will be officially released on November 11 on Blu-Ray and DVD and will come with two live CDs according to the band’s official website. A three LP vinyl set is also being released as is a special deluxe edition.
The band have also posted a new teaser trailer, which you can watch below.
