It was December 31st, 1994 and the people of Rio de Janeiro were prepared to kick off the New Year in style. In the Guinness Book of World Records ' largest free rock concert of all time, Rod Stewart did things differently.

Instead of opting for a traditional venue like a stadium -- and those Brazilian soccer fans sure have large ones -- Stewart performed, his way, and staged the concert at Copacabana Beach as a gift to the many poor people of Rio. An estimated 3.5 million people showed up to listen to this rocker's greatest hits.
