Mick Jagger arrives in Cuba for a private holiday with son

Posted: 05-Oct-15 09:55

Cuba's national newspaper Granma announced it officially and long before images were already circulating on the web as Mick Jagger posed with the staff at Havana's Sangri La bar, an image that instantly went viral on Facebook. It wasn't long before people on the streets recognised The Rolling Stones' leading singer as he was spotted touring Old Havana's historic centre. Sources say he is on holiday with his son ahead of the much-talked about Rolling Stones concert which is still in talks and expected to take place early next year in the Cuban capital.

Mick Jagger arrives in Cuba for a private holiday with son

Havana is in a flurry after welcoming The Rolling Stones’ most recognisable face – Mick Jagger's. The leading singer of the legendary and world-famous rock and roll band arrived in the Cuban capital this weekend and didn’t waste a minute in getting to know the city.

Jagger was seen touring the streets of the historic centre in Old Havana at ease and an employee from the Santa Isabel hotel, where he made a stop, revealed that he travelled to the island with one of his sons.

The 72-year-old also visited some of Havana’s hottest nightlife hotspots including the popular and privately owned Sangri La bar and restaurant, which also functions as nightclub and concert venue for some local bands. It was here that he was famously photographed posing with the staff who later uploaded the treasured group picture to their Facebook account.

Even when this seems to be a private holiday to the island, the motifs behind his visit could be linked with the concert The Rolling Stones are currently planning to stage in Havana for March 2016. As part of their upcoming tour in Latin America, these veteran rock and rollers are discussing plans for adding Cuba to this leg of their tour and are said to be in talks with the Cuban government at present.

We’re still eagerly awaiting more details of Mick Jagger’s latest visit to Cuba to be revealed but so far we can confirm he is still on the island and he seems to be interested in seeing as much culture and history as learning about the islands’ musical background and interacting with the day-to-day locals. In the meantime we're sure the Internet will soon be saturaded with images of Jagger enjoying his time in Havana as he visits more places in the island, much in the style of previous celebrities like Paris Hilton and Rihanna who also visited Cuba this year.
