This will be the first time that the band have ever played in the beautiful coastal city of Recife, the capital city Brasilia, and Manaus, situated on the Amazon in the very heart of the rainforest. It will also be their first visit to Rio for 6 years.
Following massive demand for tickets and the rapid sell out of the 40,000 capacity Palmeiras Stadium in Sao Paolo earlier this year the band will also return there again, but this time in a much bigger venue, the famous Formula One Grand Prix circuit Interlagos, where Lewis Hamilton sealed the Formula One World Championship last month. Other than Formula One Racing, the only other events ever to be arranged there are a concert by Kiss in 1999, Brazil's Skol Beat electronic dance festival and an appearance by His Holiness the Pope, for whom hundreds of thousands turned out. It promises to be a very special event.
