The Rolling Stones unleashed two hours of shrieking, thundering rock 'n' roll on an ecstatic crowd of hundreds of thousands of Cubans and foreign visitors Friday night. It capped one of the most momentous weeks in modern Cuban history with a massive celebration of once-forbidden music. The week opened with the arrival of President Barack Obama in Air Force One, accompanied by more than 1,000 employees of a government that waged a cold war against Cuba for more than 50 years. The Stones were the biggest mainstream rock act to play in Cuba since its 1959 Revolution brought a communist government to power and isolated the island from the United States and its allies.Among the spectators was a large contingent of foreign tourists, for whom seeing Cuba was as novel as seeing the Stones is for Cubans.
