The Rolling Stones will give a free concert in Havana, Cuba, on March 25, following its current tour in Latin America, the band announced Tuesday. It would be the first open-air concert in the country by a British rock band, the group said. "We have performed in many special places during our long career but this show in Havana is going to be a landmark event for us, and, we hope, for all our friends in Cuba too," the band said in a statement. The concert would come on the heels of U.S. President Barack Obama's trip to Cuba, planned for March 21-22.
