Rolling StonesAround two million fans are predicted to besiege Copacabana Beach this Saturday (February 18) to see The Rolling Stones live.

The wrinkly rocker’s ‘A Bigger Bang’ show comes just a week before the city hosts its carnival and is expected to be much bigger than first thought.

An enthusiastic Brazilian health secretary Flavio Tanure  said at a news conference “This is the biggest live show that has ever occurred in the world.”

However, according to The Guiness Book of Records, another 1.5million will have to turn up to beat Rod Stewart’s record from New Year’s Eve 1994 at the same Beach.
