The Rolling Stones have released a message to their Cuban fans as they prepare for their concert in Havana Friday.
"Hello Cuba! We are so excited to be coming to play for you!" the group said in a video posted to YouTube Tuesday.
The rock legends are set to play in Havana's Ciudad Deportiva, becoming the most famous act to play in Cuba since 1959.
"We've performed in many incredible places, but this concert in Havana is going to be an historic event for us," the message said. "We hope it will be for you too."
The concert comes just days after President Obama's historic trip to the Communist island, the first by a U.S. president in nearly 90 years.
