Tim McGraw to Headline Two Acoustic Concerts in Cuba

Tim McGraw will headline two acoustic concerts in Havana, Cuba, as part of a four-day musical/cultural festival, Tim McGraw: One of Those Havana Nights, which is set for May 23–27.

One of Tim’s acoustic concerts will be exclusive to an intimate group at the Teatro Bellas Artes, while the second concert is open to the public at Havana’s Teatro Mella. The concerts will also feature support from some of Cuba’s most beloved musicians and bands, including Carlos Varela, Traditionales De Los 50, and Los Van Van.

The festival will also include visits to Cuban museums and cultural institutions, historical architectural tours, rumba and salsa dance parties, and rum and cigar tastings.

“I feel honored that I get to share my music with the Cuban people,” says Tim. “What an incredible opportunity. For me, music transcends language. There is a heart and soul to music that all people understand on some level. Cubans have such an intimate relationship with music, I’m happy we’ll get to share that together.”

Registration for the festival begins on Dec. 5.

“One of the best things we can do as humans is to expand our knowledge of other cultures and people,” Tim says. “The best way to do that is through travel. As an artist, I am energized by exploring a new country and through meeting the people who call it home. Cuba will give me a new palette of sounds and colors to draw from next time I go to create.”
