The band will travel to Havana after concluding its America Latino Ole Tour, which features scheduled dates in countries including Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Colombia and Mexico.
Said the Stones in a statement: "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."
Billed as the "Concert for Amity," the Stones event is being promoted by AEG's Concerts West and Musica Punto Zero, with support from the Institute of Cuban Music.
The Stones are also spearheading an initiative to bring desperately needed new musical instruments into a country bruised by decades of American sanctions. Among the companies donating are Gibson, Vic Firth, RS Berkeley, Pearl, Zildjian, Gretsch, Latin Percussion, Roland and BOSS.
Hopefully that means Cuban music featuring fresh tones -- Roland drum machines, bass generators, drums -- can't be too far behind.
