Rock In Rio 2019 offers not only a night to remember, but also an historic event. After a Metal-free festival at City of Rock in 2017, the Rock In Rio organizers are giving a special gift to the fans and announces, for 2019, a whole day dedicated to Metal.

It will be a revival of the first edition in 1985, when over 300,000 Heavy Metallers attended the event. Thirty-four years later, with headliners Iron Maiden, Scorpions, Helloween and Sepultura, Rock In Rio promises another memorable night on October 4th.

Helloween have replaced the previously announced Megadeth, who unfortunately had to withdraw due to Dave Mustaine's recent treatment for throat cancer, which is reportedly going well.

Roberto Medina, president of Rock In Rio, said when announcing the whole line-up for the World Stage on the Metal night: "For the 2019 edition we started our booking focusing on these wonderful fans, because they're part of Rock In Rio's soul when they invade the City of Rock all in black. Announcing all the attractions like this is like giving them a gift.

"The reunion of these music icons in one single night will be another historical moment that Rock In Rio will provide to whoever visits us. It's like watching a movie and remembering a story that started with them 33 years ago."

Maiden were one of the first attractions ever announced for Rock In Rio, playing the opening night of the legendary 1985 edition, on January 11th. Other unforgettable performances followed when they headlined the City of Rock in the 2001 and 2013 editions. That last one sold out 90,000 tickets within hours.

This time around Maiden play the festival for the fourth time, topping the bill with their latest 'Legacy Of The Beast' tour, which is being hailed by fans and media alike as the most extravagant and visually stunningly live show of the band's career to date with a setlist of decade-spanning hits and fan favourites, including some songs not played live for many years.
