Smashing Records : Pop Superstar Madonna Creates History ; Draws Astonishing 1.6 Million Crowds In Her Final Free Tour Concert In Rio de Janeiro

Pop Superstar Madonna wrapped up her tour with a free concert on Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro, drawing an estimated 1.6 million fans, according to Deadline.

The concert marked the conclusion of her retrospective tour, celebrating her four decades in pop music, which she has been touring globally since October last year.

Madonna kicked off the show with her 1998 hit “Nothing Really Matters” and delighted fans with performances of her classic hits like “Like a Virgin,” “Hung Up,” and “Like a Prayer.” Brazilian artists Anitta and Pabllo Vittar also joined her on stage for special appearances.

According to Rio’s tourism agency, approximately 1.6 million attendees gathered on the famous city beach for the concert, which has hosted major events in the past.

In 2006, the Rolling Stones performed for 1.2 million fans at the same venue, while Rod Stewart set a record for the biggest free rock concert in history in 1994, attracting 4 million people (though some may have been drawn by the annual New Year’s Eve fireworks display).

Madonna’s previous largest live concert audience was 1,30,000 fans in Paris in 1987. Madonna’s official website hyped the show as the biggest ever in her four-decade career.

AS per AP report, In recent days, the buzz was palpable. Fans milled outside the stately, beachfront Copacabana Palace hotel, where Madonna is staying, hoping to catch a glimpse of the pop star. During the sound check on the stage set up in front of the hotel, they danced on the sand.
