Not sure if if has been mentioned yet but I saw this.

The Stones Havana concert was filmed for an Eagle Rock release by director Paul Dugdate, who handled the band’s Sweet Summer Sun -- Hyde Park Live DVD in 2013. Dubbed Concert for Amity, it is produced by JA Digital.

Did anyone see the article that said this: "The concert will be recorded in a documentary which will then be exhibited in Cuba. The documentary about the concert will project on Cuban television in a few weeks."?

The Stones posted on Facebook that they had 1.3 million attend last night

Thanks. That's what it says. I guess what I read was correct ... "The sea of people flowed beyond into the streets, with crowds even standing thick on neighboring rooftops."

"Como en el resto de la gira, el show no será transmitido en vivo por televisión, pero se grabará en un documental que luego será exhibido en Cuba."

On a rough translation: "The concert will not be broadcasted, but a documentary is being filmed and it will soon be exhibited in Cuba".

I read that as well but maybe it's a mistake they may have meant to say the whole tour.

Nate thumbs up

Really cool 1.3 million lucky Cubans got to party with the Greatest Rock Band in the World.
What a night!

I really enjoyed watching the news coverage of the concert when they interviewed some local people they said it was the best night of their life and the smile on their faces was amazing to see.

I am really glad the stones were able to play this concert for the people of Cuba.

Nate thumbs up

Everybody in Havana want my T-shirt! They gave out some fifty T-shirts to fans at the show last night, and I got one, right on the B-stage. Half a million people in the crowd. I was lucky! Nothing on sale at the venue, nothing! It was a fantastic show!

I can't publish to iorr.org tour16 pages now, but I have managed to publish some of my pictures and my report here:

[stoneslife.org]

I will do proper publishing when I am back home with high speed Internet in a day or so, i.e. by Monday. Meanwhile I will enjoy the slow pace and great hospitality of Havana in my new T-shirt...






Wow, those are awesome pictures! Thank you for posting them. Hope you have a great time in Havana, and have a safe trip home!

Everyone is entitled to their own interests in Stones shows and I appreciate that .

Some people like statistics of all sorts, decent pics and videos, moaning about the setlist, moaning about the audience, saying how good the sound was or wasn't at a gig.....................and the list go's on.

All part of being a Rolling Stones fan I guess. winking smiley[/quot



Well said, Crawdaddy.

Looks great. Official attendance says estimated 500k, but looks like a huge soccer field. Maybe 100k?

Same ol', same ol'. Who - apart from you - gives a toss about the attendance?

Actually, I'm curious about the attendance too.

You can make your choice: "Tens of thousands", according to the BBC. More than 200,000 according to the AP website.
1.5 million (????), according to the Examiner' website.

Utter nonsense about 1.3 or 1.5 million. AP figure is much closer to reality. But I don't know why they have to rely on "some estimates" when they can make their own. They were on the premises, had a tent shelter etc.

Now I am in Mexico City Airport on my way to back home Tokyo.
Great crowed, especially young guys with super high energy.
I was exhausted but it was worth to go.

Thank you IORR and IORRians. You pushed my back.












I already had 2 flights from Havana to Mexico City.
Have more 4 flights and arrive at Tokyo on Tuesday afternoon. 2 night flights and beyond date line. lol.smiling bouncing smiley

The NY Times says cell service was down for the entire city during the concert - which explains why we were Periscopeless.

Bob was at the gates at 07.00 He knows Cuba and Cubans well. He said "when the gates open Cubans will walk towards the stage in an orderly fashion.". Apparently there were few Cubans around at 14.00. When I saw movement at another gate across the field we immediately breached through the barrier and breached the FOS section barrier shocking the security people and police. At first they tried to grab the forerunners and shouted 'go back!' But it was futile. Fantastic.

Yes, we really need to see a shot of the whole venue, preferably from above, to be able to make a worthwhile estimate, but from the photos I've seen I'd guess somewhere between 80,000 and 120,000.

.....

Olly.
