Rock In Rio Lisbon 2024 Unleashes Unforgettable Lineup for Historic 20th Anniversary Bash

Get ready for a monumental celebration as Rock In Rio Lisbon unveils the headliners for its opening night on June 15, 2024, marking an epic 20th Anniversary milestone. Leading the charge is the legendary Scorpions, returning to the festival that witnessed their iconic performance in 1985, a moment etched in the festival's rich legacy. With a musical journey spanning nearly six decades, Scorpions stand as heavy metal trailblazers, known for anthems like 'Wind Of Change' and 'Rock You Like A Hurricane' that transcend generations. Having played a pivotal role in Rock In Rio's inaugural edition in Brazil and returning in 2019, Scorpions' headline act at Rock In Rio Lisbon 2024 promises to unify eras in a spectacular fashion.

Joining the lineup for the opening night are 00s rock icons Evanescence, known for hits like 'Bring Me To Life' and 'My Immortal.' Having graced Rock In Rio Lisbon in 2004 and 2012, Evanescence brings their captivating live show to a new era at the festival, over two decades since their groundbreaking debut album 'Fallen.' Adding to the excitement, 90s favorites Extreme, creators of the era-defining anthem 'More Than Words,' will ignite the stage with their universal emotion and melodic tones. Fresh from the success of their track "Play With Me" in Stranger Things and the release of their first album in 15 years, 'Six,' Extreme promises an electrifying performance at Rock In Rio Lisbon 2024.

The lineup doesn't stop there; rock titans Xutos & Pontapés, synonymous with historic Rock In Rio Lisbon performances, will collaborate with The Portuguese Philharmonic Orchestra for a special show marking the festival's 20th and the band's 45th anniversary. With over 70 musicians on stage, this performance is destined to become a cornerstone in Portuguese music history. Roberta Medina, Executive Vice-President of Rock in Rio, shares, "The line-up already announced is just a taste of what's to come, and we can't wait to share more exciting details soon."
