Rock in Rio is a big music festival that started in the city of Rio de Janeiro during the 80´s. It was also held in Lisbon and Madrid. In 2011, Rock in Rio will take place in its original home, Rio de Janeiro during the last week of september.
Rock in Rio has been the largest rock festival in the world, with 1.5 million people in the first edition, 700,000 in the second, about 1.2 million in the third, and about 350,000 people in each of the 3 Lisbon editions.

The thing is, there´s this producer (Gabriel Simas - and no, he doesnt work with the Rock in Rio crew) that has been giving tips about the bands that will perform next year, and one of his tweets were:
"One of the band that will be in Rock in Rio is that one with the butterflies shower" - Source.​

Yesterday he annouced that Red Hot Chili Peppers would be one of the headliners and said that Snow Patrol and Coldplay would be there too:
"Snow Patrol will open for Red Hot Chili Peppers and Coldplay will be the headliner for another day in Rock in Rio. And Guns n´Roses" - Source.​

Hours after that RHCP and Snow Patrol were confirmed for the 2nd day of the festival.

I hope that this can become true! If so, Brazil will be one of the first countries to see abit of the new tour! :freak::dance::awesome:

But they were here in March... :uhoh: and they always come here at the end of their Tours: sep/2003, feb/2007 and mar/2010 (and thats why I can´t believe that this can be true....)

They´re starting to announce the band this week, but they already said that they´ll do it slowly... :dozey:
Metallica, RHCP and Snow Patrol are confirmed.

ah lucky then.
portugal has not seen them in a while.

rumours of coldplay playing in any of they EU RiR (Madrid, Lisbon) have been around the last years, but never became true. :\

good luck and hopefully that become true and they go to original RiR.
