Rock In Rio To Tribute Freddie Mercury

(hennemusic) The 4th Rock In Rio festival happens this fall, with Guns N' Roses, Metallica, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Elton John among the headliners.

An event update was issued by promoter Roberto Medina, who has announced that the Opening Show will pay tribute to the different generations that enjoyed the previous shows in Rio in 1985, 1991 and 2001.

The high point will feature local bossa-nova star Milton Nascimento dueting with Freddie Mercury on the screen for a special rendition of Queen's South American mega-hit, "Love Of My Life." Queen's performances of the song during their two nights at Rock In Rio '85 are regarded as one of the defining moments in the history of the festival. more on this story
