Rolling Stones in Cuba – level 1

04-04-2016 07:00

The Rolling Stones is a British band. The band forms in 1962. The band cannot come to Cuba. The government bans it. They cannot be on Cuban TV or radio.

Now, things are different. In 2016, the Rolling Stones come to Cuba. They have a concert. Tens of thousands of people come. Some people wait 18 hours before the concert.

The Rolling Stones start the concert with Jumping Jack Flash. This is a very popular song. People have a great time. They also wear the band´s famous tongue logo.

Difficult words: form (start to be), government (the “bosses” of a country), ban (to stop something, to make something illegal).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
