I don't know whether this still stands, but the Guiness Book of World Records at some point listed a-Ha's performance at the 1991 Rock in Rio concert as the record holder with 198,000 paid attendance.

1a) already mentioned & b) paying attendees is the question. That aside, I bet it was difficult to hear anything from the back :P – Tetsujin – 2015-03-12T19:35:44.703

@Tetsujin you must have missed the time showing on rite side of profile picture of answered person. And when i submitted the answer, this example was not there. Maybe few seconds early or late. – Ankit Sharma – 2015-03-12T20:32:34.407

ah, yes - for me, I saw one this morning, the other [yours] this evening. I didn't check the timestamps, tbh. – Tetsujin – 2015-03-12T20:36:02.360
