The Stones are taking over Rio de Janeiro's famed Copacabana Beach next Saturday for what promises to be a historic rock'n'roll extravaganza
The aging but still agile rockers The Rolling Stones is scheduled to rock Rio de Janeiro's famed Copacabana Beach next Saturday Feb 18. Their performance there is said to be the biggest pop concert the world has ever seen.
Organizers are expecting more than 1 million people to attend the free concert. "It will be historic - in the sense that they are in their 60s and they can still pull in a million people. I don't know how they do it," Paul Lester, deputy editor of Uncut music magazine, told Reuters.
