Original caption: Sting, the veteran rocker and former frontman for The Police, will kick off a seven-day rock festival in Rio de Janeiro on January 12, 2001. The show will feature some of the world's hottest recording artists and promoters hope to draw 1.5 million fans from around Brazil and neighboring South American nations, which would make "Rock in Rio for a Better World," as the show is being billed, the world's biggest ever paying music festival.
