In 1990, at a stadium in Fortaleza, the King of the Baião (Luiz Gonzaga), met Pope John Paul II. Upon entering the stadium to sing his song, others saw him about to enter and caused a stampede where 3 died and over 100 were injured. – Source (PT)

Later that year, Gonzaga made a song about the meeting.
