ROCK IN RIO

Pop fans can start celebrating. Rock In Rio, the world’s biggest music and entertainment festival, has just announced the line-up in the night dedicated to this genre. On October 5, 2019, the Rock City will welcome pop superstar P!nk, who debuts as headliner and ends the night performing her biggest hits.

 

On the same day, super group Black Eyed Peas – a debuting in the event – takes to the stage with a catalog of hymns such as “Where Is The Love?”, “I Gotta Feeling”, and “Lets Get It Started”. Brazilian singer Anitta, the first confirmed attraction of Rock in Rio 2019, opens the night. A fourth attraction, to complete the line-up, will still be announced.

 

Rock in Rio 2019 will take place on September 27, 28 and 29, October 3, 4, 5 and 6, at the Rock City, which will occupy the Rio de Janeiro Olympic Park for the second consecutive edition. Rock in Rio Cards (a ticket that entitles you to go to the festival before all attractions are announced) will go on sale on November 12 this year, starting at 7:00 pm, at www.rockinrio.com.

 

Created in 1985, the festival has had 19 editions, 112 days and 2,038 musical attractions. Over 33 years of history, it has had an audience of more than 9.5 million people. Born in Rio de Janeiro, Rock in Rio also conquered Portugal, Spain and the United States.

 

 

CHECK OUT THE ATTRACTIONS

 

P!nk – The first time of the superstar in Brazil. The critically acclaimed “Beautiful Trauma World Tour” kicked off in Phoenix, USA, last March, and has touched audiences across America, Australia and New Zealand. With a career of more than 20 years, P!nk has seven studio albums, a collection of top hits, and sold 50 million copies, more than 75 million singles, 2.4 million DVDs worldwide, and had 15 singles on Billboard Hot 100 list’s top 10 (four #1). Plus, among other awards, she won three Grammy Awards (19 nominations).

Black Eyed Peas – In addition to classic hits, the band will be releasing “Ring The Alarm Pt 1, Pt 2 and Pt 3″” and “Big Love”, from the group’s seventh studio album entitled ‘Masters of The Sun”, which is being launched. Formed by will.i.am, apl.de.ap and Taboo, the Black Eyed Peas is a multi-platinum band with more than 35 million albums sold worldwide, leading the world charts. The artists have won six Grammys and eight American Music Awards throughout their careers.

Anitta – After performing at Rock in Rio Lisboa, the Brazilian singer prepares to land in the Brazilian Rock City for the first time. The artist was elected the 15th most influential artist in the world on social networks (leaving names like Lady Gaga, Shakira and Rihanna behind) by US magazine Billboard. Anitta stood out with several singles like “Sim ou Não”, a duet with Maluma; “Loka”, by Simone & Simaria; and “Sua Cara”, with Major Lazer and Pabllo Vittar. The latter broke world records as the most viewed video in 24 hours in 2017, and the fastest in history to reach a million likes.
