    Background: One hundred and thirty thousand fans filled Rio de Janeiro's Maracana Stadium at the weekend (26 January) to hear America's earliest superstar, singer Frank Sinatra. Although he's used to attracting crowds, the Brazilian concert gave the singer the biggest audience of his career.

    SYNOPSIS: Preparations for Frank Sinatra's concert had been going on all week. It seemed almost the entire population of Rio was working towards the big event. But there were those who didn't agree with Sinatra's appearance, those who claimed he was a member of the Mafia, and wanted him to go home.

    But, in the end, they couldn't stop one hundred and thirty thousand people enjoying the concert, adoring, and even mobbing, Sinatra.

    For Sinatra it was the largest audience of his life, and for the Brazilians it was Sinatra Superstar.
