How do you kick off the largest concert series in the world? Obviously with a fire work display like it’s the Forth of July! The first night of Rock In Rio (see previous post for full Rock in Rio details), started off with a bang, and featured performances by Claudia Leitte, Katy Perry, Elton John and Rihanna. Claudia Leitte was up first singing here heart out and shaking her sexy bunda then it was Katy Perry‘s turn to work the crowd.
Katy Perry was incredible! It was amazing to see how many outfits she changed into, it was like watching a magic show while she performed Waking up in Vegas, Teenage Dream, Last Friday Night, Hot n Cold, Peacock, California Girls, Thinking of You (#1 in Brazil& Argentina only), I Kissed a Girl, ET and more. Between all of the crazy outfit changes she also managed to invite one lucky Brazilian on stage for a kiss! But it was her closing song Fireworks which really blew me away, she even had fireworks shooting up from the stage (I’m such a child about fireworks so was loving it!)!
When Rihanna finally came on the crowd went wild! Talk about a great performer, her energy was off the charts; the crowd (and I) were loving it! She opened with Only Girl In the WorldFollowed by Please Dont Stop the Music (video), S&M (video), Hard, Rude Boy, Shut up and Drive, Man Down, California King Bed, Pon de Replay, Disturbia, Love the Way You Lie, Unfaithful, Te Amo, What’s My Name?, Cheers Drink to That (she actually took a shot with the audience (now that’s dedication:)), Living Your Life(video below) and she closed with Umbrella.
