LOS ANGELES, Calif., March 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Icelandic Glacial™ is pleased to announce their role in providing water for The Rolling Stones' free concert performance in Havana, Cuba on March 25. The partnership includes sampling to concert-goers as well as providing water to the band and the entire backstage and set-up crew involved in building the event.
This concert fits perfectly with Icelandic Glacial's spirit of giving back; The Stones will be partnering with some of the world's largest music retail suppliers in donating instruments to aspiring Cuban musical artists who need them most.
"We are thrilled at the opportunity to partner with the Rolling Stones for this landmark concert in Cuba," commented Jón Ólafsson, Chairman and Co-Founder of Icelandic Glacial. "We believe in the importance of giving back, and we cannot think of a better way to introduce our water to the people of Cuba than through this incredible show."
"The Rolling Stones would like to thank Icelandic Glacial," commented Fran Curtis, spokesperson for The Rolling Stones. "Their generous water contribution for the event will help make it an even bigger success than we previously anticipated." The concert marks the first time The Rolling Stones will perform in Cuba, coinciding with the band's South American leg of their América Latina Olé Tour, and the first time Icelandic Glacial will be sampled in the island nation as well.
