Rio De Janeiro 2019 [no label, 2CD]

Rock in Rio. Live at the Parque Olímpico, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; October 4, 2019. Very good audio (ripped from HDTV broadcast).

With 35 years of Rock In Rio approaching, there’s been a big push on site to commemorate the ’85 edition. There’s even a street built like a movie set called Route 85, with sculpture, a cinema screen documentary, a bandstand and a ye-haw saloon. The line-up too makes frequent flashbacks, with a handful of acts booked that year making a return. Of the lot, Iron Maiden are most prominent. Bringing their Legacy of the Beast tour to Rock In Rio, it’s a set that’s as captivating for the eyes as it is the ears: the props and pyro are astonishing. Apart from hearing singer Dickinson make charming remarks about the inaugural edition, stating, “This was the biggest concert in the word, certainly in the Americas,” and then adding, “Each time is as good as the first.” It’s the simplicity of being able to raw back the words to ‘Run To The Hills’ that’s the most memorable. Oh, and the incredible tuneful, uplifting Rock In Rio anthem that comes just after they leave the stage, in perfect sync with the fireworks, as everyone hangs on even later into the night. We get this every night and it’s glorious and what makes me realise how much RiR puts into the things other festival might brush over. - Cai Trefor,
