Rolling Stones: free concert in Rio

Free concert by Keith, Charlie, Ronnie and ""Yes, Sir" Mick.

The Rolling Stones will take over Rio de Janeiro's famed Copacabana Beach Saturday (Feb. 18) for what promises to be a historic rock'n'roll extravaganza. Organizers expect more than 1 million people to fill the beach area for the free concert by the aging but still agile rockers -- one of the biggest crowds ever for a rock show.

Fans around the world will be able to catch the show virtually via AOL Music and XM Satellite Radio (Deep Tracks Channel 40), which will feature a live simulcast beginning at 7:30 p.m. ET. The Rio show will also be filmed for an eventual DVD release. Those not willing to wait can see the footage Feb. 28 in U.S. movie theaters via a Big Screen Concerts One Night Only presentation. Theater locations and tickets can be found via bigscreenconcerts.com.
