Rolling Stones to Play Copacabana Beach

From Billboard.com…

Roll over, bossa nova. 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.

Largest. Beach party. Ever.

Wait a second, though…

Though sex and drugs are an important part of Stone’s lore, the band will avoid the action on Copacabana’s main drag. They will cross from their suites on the 6th floor of the Copacabana Palace Hotel on a purpose-built walkway over Atlantic Avenue onto the seven-story-high stage on the beach.

Seven-story-high stage? Jeebus…
