Rolling Stones in Cuba – level 2
The Rolling Stones is a British band that first formed in 1962. Cuba’s revolutionary government, led by Fidel Castro, found the music dangerous. Cuba banned the Rolling Stones across TV and radio.
However, the Rolling Stones performed in Cuba for the first time in history last month. Tens of thousands of people watched the show. Mic Jagger and company kicked off with their hit “Jumping Jack Flash”.
Fans waited for the concert for up to 18 hours before the start. A lot of them wore the band’s iconic tongue logo.
Difficult words: ban (if you ban something, you make it illegal), kick off (to start), iconic (very recognisable).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
