Best Rock In Rio Performances


The Top Ten

1 Iron Maiden - 2001

The band had just re-united and they were REALLY at the top of their game. The energy was palpable. The was bruce connected with the crowd was just amazing. I have never seen the Rock in Rio in such flow along with the band.

This concert was just absolutely amazing. Atmosphere was ecstatic!

Seen videos of the performance and they really nailed it - bobbythebrony

I mean, does it get any better than Iron Maiden Rock in Rio 2001?... No. It does not. Not yet at least.

2 Coldplay - 2011

Hands down best performance ever! Listen to the show daily during my runs.

3 Queen - 1985

I was there. I saw the iron maiden show in 85 too. Both were stellar but Queen was beyond simply pop / rock or entertainment. They were transcendental.

There is no better band live. They headlined in front of over 200,000 people! I don't understand how Coldplay even be mentioned! We are living in a SAD SAD world!

Queen were spectacular and nobody could do live like Freddie could...

Just... perfection.

Steven is in my opinion the best vocalist ever because he has been sings at the same range for almost 50 years and still today can take these very high vocals like back in the day
