Metallica's 1991 performance in moscow... well over 1 million fans in attendance not satellite crap live the stuff writen below
The largest concert audience?
For a "live" televised concert via Satellite it's "Live Aid" which was held to raise money for famine relief in Ethiopa. An estimated 1.5 billion people watched the telecast in 100 countries on July 13, 1985.
For an attended concert, the winner is the Rod Stewart concert held at Copacabana Beach on December 31, 1994. It was estimated that 3.5 million people attended the free concert in Rio de Janeiro.
Jean Michel Jarre's concert in Moscow in 1997 celebrating the city's 850th Anniversary also had an estimated 3.5 million attendees. And Jarre's shows are most certainly the largest when it comes to his 'stage'..he uses entire cities as his backdrops....If you ever have a chance to see one of his shows, do so...there is nothing like it.
Again the largest INDOOR concert is Alice cooper in Brazil in 1974
I'd actually like to disagree with your above statement, I believe INXS had the largest "indoor" concert in 1989 at Glen Waverely RSL with 4.2m, unfortunately its not a widely reported concert, they even had to open the second dinning room....by the way there aren't even 3.5 million people who live in Copacabana...get real.
