Rolling Stones in Cuba – level 3

Rolling Stones in Cuba – level 3

04-04-2016 07:00

For the first time in history, the Rolling Stones rocked Cuba. Watched by tens of thousands, Mick Jagger and co. kicked off with their hit “Jumping Jack Flash”.

It might only be rock and roll but the Cuban fans more than liked it. Fans started queuing for the concert 18 hours before the gates opened. They were all dressed to impress with the iconic tongue logo across all items of clothing.

When the Stones first formed in 1962, Cuba's revolutionary government, led by Fidel Castro, found their music to be dangerous and banned it across TV and radio.

Today though, Cuban fans were nothing short of ecstatic to watch the British band play half a century on.

Difficult words: rock (to play rock music and to make very excited), and co. (and company, and the rest), nothing short of (nothing less than), ecstatic (very happy).
