Assunto:  Is this sentence correct, please?
 
Mensagem: 

Although I feel it's perfectly possible to use both, I did a quick research on the sentences and got just some results for the second one; which I guess it must be if you wait, you usually wait for something; in that case I assume in the first one it'd be kind of redundant using the preposition for twice. (I guess)  Look:
 
The people have been waiting for a long time for the concert.
 
The people have been waiting a long time for the concert. (sounds better to me).
 
 
 
 
That was just my take on it. I'm sure some regular experts will drop by in no time and let their gems of wisdom.

 

take care.
