RollingStonesHavanaMoonEarlier this year, The Rolling Stones played a historic, boundary-busting free concert in Cuba’s capital city of Havana.

Hundreds of thousands of jubilant fans soaked up the once-in-a-lifetime gig on March 25th – appropriately, it was Good Friday – in a country completely unfamiliar with rock concerts (let alone one put on by the legendary Rolling Stones).

The band, genuinely fired up for the big show, treated the Cuban crowd to a greatest-hits setlist, including classic pre-’80s tunes like “Gimme Shelter,” “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” “Tumbling Dice,” “Honky Tonk Women,” “All Down The Line” and “Sympathy For The Devil.”

Now the historic Cuban gig is available in a multi-format release. Here’s a peek at Havana Moon with the band ripping “Brown Sugar”:
