The Rolling Stones made history Friday night with their performance at Ciudad Deportiva, a makeshift venue assembled for the biggest rock concert ever in Cuba.

The band is the most famous act to play Cuba since its 1959 revolution and, according to a dispatch from the Miami Herald, the free concert was expected to draw a crowd of at least 500,000 fans and possibly close to a million.

The Rolling Stones, whose “Zip Code” leg of the tour played Atlanta last summer, opened their Cuban concert with the double punch of “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” and “It’s Only Rock and Roll (But I Like It).”

Check out our gallery of photos from the concert.
