[edit] Information

National Geographic Inside: This series takes viewers behind the scenes of human worlds no one except the real insiders ever see: the staging of a Rolling Stones concert for 1.5 million people on the beach in Rio de Janeiro. It is one of the biggest concerts in history with one of the most ground-breaking bands in music and National Geographic Channel has a backstage pass. The Rolling Stones kick off Rio de Janeiro's carnival with a free concert for an estimated 1.5 million people. It was the British pop icons' biggest-ever show. The band has been entertaining audiences for more than four decades. For the Rolling Stones, it was their first concert in the city since 1998. For Rio de Janeiro, it was a chance to burnish an image tarnished by a reputation for violence. Most of the fans watched packed into a 1.6-kilometer (1-mile) stretch of the 4.6-kilometer-long Copacabana beach. Others watched from the windows and balconies of the high-rises apartments and hotels that line the waterfront. On the other side of the beach hundreds of boats anchored within sight of the stage. Thousands of others milled around on the beach or in the narrow streets of Copacabana. Globo News, which broadcast the concert in Rio, estimated the crowd at 1.5 million people. The show in numbers: Nearly 2,000,000 fans were estimated to party alongside the Stones at Rio's famed Copacabana Beach. Nearly 1,500 people have been assembled as crew to produce this record-breaking event. Nearly 200 movie theaters broadcast the historic concert to cheering fans across North America. Countless beams, poles, and rigs are being used to assemble the 22 meter-high by 57 meter-wide main stage and the 55 meter-long B-Stage. A staggering 16 towers and 8 video screens adorn the main stage. Witness the extreme challenges crew members face as they transport 200 tons of equipment, build a seven story stage, and keep over a million screaming fans safe. Get a rare peek behind the curtain to share a few intimate moments with rock legends. One of the world's most enduring rock bands gives the performance of their lives on the sun-drenched shores of Brazil's most famous beach. Written & Produced by Brian Armstrong ; A National Geographic Television and Film Production
