Mercedes-Benz Sponsors Rock in Rio USA

Rock in Rio announced today sponsorship agreement with Mercedes-Benz to serve as official sponsor for the upcoming Rock in Rio USA music festival taking place May 8-9 and May 15-16 in Las Vegas. The agreement includes Mercedes-Benz having naming rights of the Sunset Stage that will be named Mercedes-Benz Evolution Stage.  

The Rock in Rio partnership represents a natural build on the luxury brand’s involvement in producing consumer-facing music events, which began with last year’s groundbreaking multi-city Mercedes-Benz Evolution Tour. This year, Mercedes-Benz will further present consumers with experiences that showcase the evolution of the brand and tap into key consumer passion points. 

“We are excited to continue our support of both up-and-coming and established talent in the music industry through the sponsorship of Rock in Rio,” said Drew Slaven, Vice President of Marketing at Mercedes-Benz USA. “Rock in Rio prides itself in delivering an unparalleled consumer experience, while appealing to a wide and diverse demographic. These key attributes are important as we continue to evolve and enhance the Mercedes-Benz music platform in the US.” 

“We’re very excited to have such a premium brand as Mercedes-Benz sponsoring Rock in Rio. Over the past 30 years we’ve developed a very successful model that delivers a strong communication platform for brands,” states Roberto Medina, President and Founder of Rock in Rio. “What better way to kick-off the first US edition of Rock in Rio than to align with a top luxury brand such as Mercedes-Benz.” 

Rock in Rio: 30 years of a sponsor-based event
Since its inception, Rock in Rio has embraced sponsors and brands as part of its DNA: in 1985, the first edition of the festival was sponsored by the biggest beer brand in Brazil with an investment of 25 million dollars and gathered 1.3 million people over 10 days of festival.  Nowadays, the festival has expanded to 3 countries and was attended by more than 7.4 million people. In 2013, the Brazilian edition reached 54 million dollars in sponsorships and for the September 2015 edition Rock in Rio will also gather the same value.

For the first edition in the US, Rock in Rio USA has already reached the 14 million dollars mark, and is partnering with brands like Red Bull, Bacardi, Moet Hennessy, Las Vegas Events, among others. The festival also has returning brands from previous events in Brazil and Portugal: Sky Brazil, Hotel Urbano and EDP Renewables. 

The legendary music festival first edition in the US is a partnership between the MGM Resorts International, Yucaipa Gropu and Cirque du Soleil. With a capacity of 85,000 people per day, the more than 40-acre venue will include a ferris wheel and a 64-foot-high zip line. The venue also includes a VIP area that can accommodate up to 4,000 people featuring air conditioning, an all-inclusive buffet and open bar (certain premium liquors will be available for additional purchase) and a unique view of The City of Rock. Additionally, The City of Rock will feature three Rock Streets – themed streets welcoming attendees to experience an entirely new and exciting kind of music festival and to enjoy the eclectic cultures of the U.S., the UK and Brazil.

Rock in Rio USA will welcome some of the biggest names in music on its Main Stage including Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Sam Smith, Metallica, Linkin Park, No Doubt, Ed Sheeran, Big Sean, Maná and Echosmith among others.

Rise Against Added to the Lineup for Rock In Rio USA Taking Place May 2015 in Las Vegas

rock in Rio

 

RISE AGAINST ADDED TO THE LINEUP FOR ROCK IN RIO USA TAKING PLACE MAY 2015 IN LAS VEGAS

The Punk Rock Band is Scheduled to Appear on the Main Stage on the Same Date as Metallica and Linkin Park

 

Rock in Rio has announced Rise Against will perform on the Main Stage during the first weekend of Rock in Rio USA, taking place in Las Vegas on May 8-9 and 15-16, 2015. The Chicago punk rock band will appear on May 9, the same date as previously announced Main Stage performers Metallica and Linkin Park.

After 15 years, and six incendiary albums, Rise Against have become one of the most successful, challenging and revered punk rock bands on the planet. While selling four million albums globally across their last four releases — with 2011’s “Endgame” debuting at number one in Germany and Canada, and number two on the U.S. Billboard charts — they’ve also always adhered to the idea of music as a vehicle for change.  Rise Against’s new album “The Black Market” debuted at #3 on Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart and the debuted at #1 in Germany, Australia and Canada where it has already achieved gold status.

In doing so, they’ve appeared alongside superstars like Adele and Sting on Amnesty International’s “Chimes Of Freedom — The Songs Of Bob Dylan” compilation in 2012, toured with Rage Against The Machine’s iconic guitarist Tom Morello, campaigned against gun violence with the Demand A Plan organization and advocated the Make It Stop campaign’s attempt to raise awareness of LBGT teen suicides and bullying, working closely with “It Gets Better.” It’s important to keep this rich heritage of protest in mind when discussing “The Black Market.”

Rise Against is the latest addition to an already stellar Main Stage lineup including Bruno Mars, No Doubt, Metallica, Linkin Park, Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran and many others to come.  Rock in Rio has also announced initial artists for the festival’s Sunset Stage including Deftones, John Legend and Joss Stone.

Rock in Rio USA will take over the Las Vegas Strip for the first time on May 8-9 and May 15-16, 2015.  The City of Rock will host more than 100 performances over 4 days. The venue will also host three Rock Streets that capture the sounds and culture of Brazil, UK and the U.S. with dozens of performers, bands and street artists, as well as an Electronic Stage.

During the press conference, the organization announced the first artists that will take part of next year’s event in Las Vegas: Metallica, Linkin Park, Taylor Swift and No Doubt, who will all perform on the festival’s Main Stage. Metallica will return to the Rock in Rio stage after six previous performances at the international event.  Appearing on the same day as Metallica, multi-platinum rock group Linkin Park are also returning after previous Rock in Rio performances.

The LA band No Doubt has also been confirmed and made an appearance at the Times Square press conference. The band stated that they are “extremely happy to be taking the stage of Rock in Rio’s first US festival and to be part of such an amazing musical history as the festival celebrates its 30th anniversary.”

In addition, the organization also announced the first names of the line-up for the Sunset Stage: The Deftones and John Legend. The Sunset Stage has quickly become a phenomenon featuring a line-up filled with special guests and unexpected musical collaborations.

As 2015 will also host the return of Rock in Rio to Brazil, the organization announced some of the performers scheduled for September. Katy Perry will take the Main Stage in Rio for the second time, bringing her spectacular stage show to the Brazilian crowd. John Legend will also take the stage in Brazil and make his debut at the festival headlining at the Sunset Stage.

The City of Rock
Rock in Rio has joined forces with entertainment giants MGM Resorts International (NYSE:MGM), Cirque du Soleil and Ron Burkle (The Yucaipa Companies) for the festival’s U.S. debut in Las Vegas in May 2015. An alliance founded on a shared commitment to creating innovative entertainment, Rock in Rio, MGM Resorts and Cirque du Soleil will redefine the modern music festival for U.S. audiences with a monumental combination of the biggest names in music and a fully immersive entertainment experience, all housed in a spectacular, custom-made “City of Rock.”

The permanent open-air concert venue will be located on The Strip near the corner of Sahara Avenue, spread out over 37 acres and have the capacity for 85,000 people per day. It includes six stages, three themed Rock Streets encompassing the culture and music of the U.S., UK and Brazil and a zip line that stretches  64 feet high and 600 feet long in front of Main Stage. The venue also includes a VIP area that can accommodate up to 4000 people; an air-conditioned area with a unique view of the City of Rock and an all-inclusive buffet.

Rock in Rio’s global communication campaign

For the launch of the pre-sale ticket vouchers, the U.S. audience will see an action-packed commercial spot that will run for a 2 weeks period on television and online featuring Donald Sutherland. Featuring Hollywood blockbuster production values, Sutherland has a briefcase stolen and takes all necessary measures to retrieve it. After all, the suitcase contains Rock in Rio tickets!

“30 Years, Many Dreams”
The Times Square Takeover event also kicked off Rock in Rio’s “30 Years, Many Dreams,” this year’s theme for the event’s Social Project that will be granting wishes submitted by Rock in Rio fans. Since 2001, the festival has added a social component to the event and has raised and invested more than $23 million for environmental and social causes.

Rock in Rio was itself born from a dream that could have never been fulfilled had it not been for those people who believed in it.  As part of the 30th anniversary celebrations the organization has decided to pay that gratitude forward by helping to make dreams come true for young people who fight for their causes.  Contenders will upload a short text about their dream at rockinrio.com/usa/dreams, and the most compelling and passionate stories will be chosen.

To illustrate the project, a video campaign will be launched, presenting the first dream that has been fulfilled – 25 year old Brazilian clown Michel de Souza. Michel was born and raised in a small town near São Paulo and worked as a clown in the local circus. He dreamed of learning with the best professionals and taking the stage in a huge circus. His story moved Roberto Medina, and Souza is having the chance to train at Circus du Soleil and learn from the leading circus professionals in the world.

“Coming to the US was always Roberto’s dream and now that it is coming true with May’s festival in Las Vegas, we felt it was the perfect time to make others’ dreams come true with our ‘30 Years, Many Dreams project.’”

Rock in Rio USA: a world of partnerships 

Rock in Rio has become a true entertainment phenomenon and top destination in all of its international locations. In Portugal it had a higher awareness than the 2004 World Cup and in Spain it was bigger than Formula 1. The Festival, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2015, has grown to be the largest music festival series in the world and its heritage as unique communication project and fan engagement platform is now coming to America.

Rush’s Alex Lifeson Joins PRS Acoustic Signature Artist Family

Rush’s Alex Lifeson Joins PRS Acoustic Signature Artist Family

 

PRS Guitars is pleased to announce the new Private Stock Alex Lifeson Thinline acoustic guitar, new for NAMM 2014. While the craftsmanship and attention to detail are very consistent with other PRS Private Stock acoustics, this instrument embodies some new design elements that take the instrument in a unique direction. The Alex Lifeson signature PRS acoustic is slightly thinner than the company’s Angelus Cutaway and Tonare Grand and is constructed in such a way that it lends itself to louder stage volumes and the rigors of the road.

“During the 2013 Rush Clockwork Angels Tour, I had the opportunity to spend some time with a PRS Angelus Cutaway.  It quickly became my pre-show warm up guitar, and I spent many hours in many hotel rooms lost in the gorgeous sound and tone of that beautiful instrument.  I’m very happy to announce that I have collaborated with PRS to develop an Alex Lifeson Signature model based on this superlative platform,” said Lifeson. “If you’re like me, you won’t be able to put it down.”

Alex LifesonThe Alex Lifeson signature acoustic is made in PRS Guitars’ Maryland shop and features a bearclaw spruce top and koa back and sides with a mahogany neck and ebony bridge, fretboard, and headstock veneer. It is adorned with Mother of Pearl and Paua “Birds in Flight” inlays and Paua purfling along the top, fretboard, and headstock veneer.

“We are honored to work with Alex, a guitarist with world-renowned acclaim, experience, and talent. It would be difficult to find a better person to lend a discerning ear and such voluminous experience to a project like this.  Our goal has been to develop a musical instrument that can perform equally well at home, on the stage, in the studio, or in the practice room.  With Alex, we have found the perfect balance of all the above in an elegant package,” Jack Higginbotham, President, PRS Guitars.

The PRS Private Stock Alex Lifeson Thinline acoustic will be available starting in the spring of 2014. More details on this model can be found here: www.prsguitars.com/lifeson.

The guys and girls who help create that magic.”

Grammy-Award winning rock band, LINKIN PARK will bring its unique and high-energy music to The Joint on Friday, Jan. 10.

The SoCal sextet fused electronica, metal and hip-hop on its 2000 debut Hybrid Theory and made instant history. The band’s infectious singles overwhelmed radio formats and the Billboard charts, making it the best selling album in the world that year. With three GRAMMY nominations, six to date, a statuette for Best Hard Rock Performance, and later, the extraordinary Diamond certification, Hybrid Theory sold over 18 million copies worldwide.

The six friends with a dynamic assortment of talents — co-frontmen Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda, turntablist/video director Joe Hahn, percussionist Rob Bourdon, guitarist Brad Delson and bassist Dave “Phoenix” Farrell — stay multiple steps ahead of the increasingly derivative competition. Bennington’s lycanthropic croon-to-howl transformations offset Shinoda’s pointed, earnest MC screeds, while new singles like “Somewhere I Belong,” “Numb” and “Breaking the Habit” struck a perfect balance between processed and organic, anthemic and intimate. Sophomore sensation Meteora proved the band’s first album wasn’t a fluke, taking the successes of the first album and expanding upon them, sonically and emotionally.

From that point on, the band fully embraced the eclecticism hinted at in the first two records: they joined forces with hip-hop legend Jay-Z in 2004 for the groundbreaking mash-up Collision Course EP. Minutes to Midnight was the first of three boundary-pushing, full-length partnerships with iconic producer Rick Rubin (Beastie Boys, Metallica, Adele), followed by the daring, socio-political concept epic A Thousand Suns.

With so many forward-thinking looks in a catalog of just four albums, the band found imaginative ways of tying them together in 2012’s diverse Living Things. Like all of its prior records, it bowed at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and debuted at No. 1 in over 20 countries. Linkin Park is the first and only band to score five consecutive number one album debuts this century.

Linkin Park’s global touring numbers are even more ridiculous than its album sales. On its most recent tour cycle, the band played to over 1 million people in 79 shows on six continents. Since its inception, Linkin Park have prioritized exploring innovative means of connecting with its vast fan base.

 

Zac Brown Band with special guest Levi Lowrey *just added*                                                                                                                   Saturday, Jan. 11 and Sunday, Jan. 12 at 8 p.m.

Tickets start at $99.50                                                                                                                                                                                   On sale Friday, Dec. 6 at 10 a.m.

GRAMMY award-winning country/folk megastars Zac Brown Band will return to The Joint this winter for two phenomenal shows on Saturday, Jan. 11 and Sunday, Jan. 12.

Demand for the Zac Brown Band experience is at an all-time high. The multi-platinum, three-time GRAMMY award-winning outfit throws down every night with expert musicianship, hearty Southern rock, and an unparalleled fan experience that’s selling out arenas and amphitheaters from coast to coast.

The band’s third studio album Uncaged debuted at No. 1 with its best first-week sales of 234,000 copies, followed by the triple-platinum major label debut The Foundation and platinum No. 1 You Get What You Give. Together these albums have produced a historic series of 10 No. 1 hit singles.

The Georgia seven-piece has been lauded by fans and critics alike as a “truly astounding troupe of musicians” with a “staggering display of instrumental prowess” that makes them “one of the best live bands on the planet.”

Levi Lowrey is a singer and songwriter who has performed extensively as a solo artist, headliner and supporting act. He co-wrote the Zac Brown Band’s single “The Wind” from the band’s No. 1 Billboard album Uncaged, has been nominated for several County Music Awards and was named one of 13 for 13” Ones to Watch in 2013 by Roughstock.

KOMP’s Totally Politically Correct Holiday Bash featuring Stone Temple Pilots with Chester Bennington with special guests P.O.D. and Sick Puppies

Sunday, Dec. 15 at 7 p.m.

Tickets start at $39.50                                                                                                                                                                                   On sale now

KOMP’S Totally Politically Correct Holiday Bash featuring Stone Temple Pilots with Chester Bennington with special guests P.O.D. and Sick Puppies will take over The Joint on Sunday, Dec. 15.

The men behind one of the most influential bands in rock ‘n’ roll, bassist Robert DeLeo, guitarist Dean DeLeo and drummer Eric Kretz of Stone Temple Pilots (STP), made the bold decision to join forces with Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington in early 2013. With Bennington in the fold, STP ignited a renaissance of newfound independence. STP released on Oct. 8 its highly anticipated EP, High Rise, which pulses with renewed energy and purpose.

P.O.D., also known as Payable on Death, has the right to talk about passion in music. Passion has been front and center since the band formed in 1992 in San Diego, and all the way up to the release of its eighth and latest record, Murdered Love. In the last two decades, the group has sold over 10 million albums (including 2001’s triple platinum record Satellite), garnered four No. 1 music videos, three GRAMMY nominations and over a dozen rock radio hits, including “Southtown,” “Alive,” “Youth of the Nation” and “Goodbye For Now.”

Sick Puppies’ recently released its third and most ambitious album, Connect. The trio is all about connection with their fans, each other, their own psyches, and each of the dozen songs on the album Connect, which include intense, epic rockers to mellower yet lyrically anguished ballads, is introspective yet also universal. From the first single, “There’s No Going Back” to the band’s most political song, the ironic “Gunfight,” Connect will exhilarate old fans and captivate new ones.

 

Steve Miller Band and The Doobie Brothers                                                                                                                                                 Saturday, Dec. 28 at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets start at $59.50                                                                                                                                                                                   On sale now

Legendary rockers Steve Miller Band and The Doobie Brothers announced a special Saturday, Dec. 28 performance at The Joint. Both bands will perform their greatest hits during one amazing night at the award-winning music venue.

Steve Miller Band’s broad appeal crosses musical boundaries. Miller has released two new albums including the 2010 No. 1 blues album Bingo and its successor Let Your Hair Down – the first albums in 18 years. One of rock music’s all-time greats, the Steve Miller Band has sold more than 40 million records in a career spanning more than 40 years. His trademark blues-rock sound made him one of the key artists in classic rock radio.

There’s no separating the unparalleled legacy of The Doobie Brothers from its latest released album, World Gone Crazy. In a sense, World Gone Crazy is an analogy for The Doobie Brothers as a whole. With founding members Tom Johnston and Pat Simmons, and 30 year-plus veterans John McFee and Michael Hossack, The Doobie Brothers have perfectly honored the band’s legacy with an offering that grows in unexpected new directions. Aside from a few years of inactivity in the mid-80s, The Doobie Brothers has continued to perform, create and record for over 21 years. The band that has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide is known for such hits as “Blackwater,” and “Takin’ It to the Streets.”

 

Imagine Dragons with special guests The Mowgli’s and Parade of Lights                                                                                                  Monday, Dec. 30 at 8 p.m.

Tickets start at $79.50                                                                                                                                                                                   On sale now

Platinum-selling rock band and Las Vegas’ very own Imagine Dragons will be kicking off the New Year’s celebrations in Las Vegas. The hometown band will be joined by special guests The Mowgli’s and Parade of Lights to rock out The Joint on Monday, Dec. 30.

Rolling Stone proclaimed Imagine Dragons “the biggest breakout of the year,” Entertainment Weekly called 2013 the “Year of the Dragons,” and Billboard noted “Imagine Dragons are rock’s 2013 live breakout.”

Imagine Dragons was formed in 2008 by Dan Reynolds (vocals) along with Wayne Sermon (guitar), Ben McKee (bass) and Daniel Platzman (drums). The band recorded and released its first three EPs (Imagine Dragons, Hell and Silence, and It’s Time) in Las Vegas. The single “It’s Time” holds the record for the longest run on AOL Radio’s “Top 10 Alternative Songs” of 2012. Local Vegas awards include “Best CD” in 2011 by Vegas Seven, “Best Local Indie Band” in 2010 by Las Vegas Weekly and “Las Vegas’ Newest Must-See Live Act” by Las Vegas CityLife.

Imagine Dragons’ debut album Night Visions on KIDinaKORNER/Interscope has been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The album arrived on the Billboard’s Top 200 chart at No. 2 with the best first-week sales for a full-length debut by a new rock band in over six years. The album has been propelled by the amazing success of the two-time platinum-selling single “It’s Time” and the six-time platinum follow-up “Radioactive,” which Rolling Stone named “the biggest rock hit of the year.” The current single, “Demons” has sold over 1.3 million copies.

Alternative rockers The Mowgli’s are from Southern California. The band is best known for its hit song “San Francisco,” which was No. 11 on Billboard’s “Alternative Songs” chart this year. The group is named after a character in “The Jungle Book” by Rudyard Kipling.

Parade of Lights is an alternative-electro band based in Los Angeles. Comprised of Ryan Daly, Anthony Improgo, Michelle Ashley and Randy Schulte, the group combines equal parts rock, electro, and shoegaze to create a unique blend of 80s influenced pop drawing on inspiration from artists such as U2, Depeche Mode, M83 and Madonna.

Linkin Park Brings Unique and High Energy Music to The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas, Jan. 10

jointHardRocknewaeg













LINKIN PARK

FRIDAY, JANUARY 10 AT 9PM

Tickets on-sale Friday at 10am!

Grammy-Award winning rock band, LINKIN PARK will be bringing their unique and high energy music to The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Friday, January 10. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10am.

The SoCal sextet fused electronica, metal and hip-hop on their 2000 debut Hybrid Theory—and made instant history. Their infectious singles overwhelmed radio formats and the Billboard charts, making it the best selling album in the world that year. With three Grammy nominations (they’ve had six to date), a statuette for Best Hard Rock Performance, and later, the extraordinary Diamond certification, Hybrid Theory sold over 18 million copies worldwide. Linkin Park gave expertly-articulated voice to their audience’s feral rage (“One Step Closer”), insecurity (“Crawling”) and fallibility (“In the End”). They came, saw, and conquered the world in their rookie year.

The six friends with a dynamic assortment of talents—co-frontmen Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda, turntablist/video director Joe Hahn, percussionist Rob Bourdon, guitarist Brad Delson and bassist Dave “Phoenix” Farrell—set about staying multiple steps ahead of the increasingly derivative competition. Bennington’s lycanthropic croon-to-howl transformations offset Shinoda’s pointed, earnest MC screeds, while new singles like “Somewhere I Belong,” “Numb” and “Breaking the Habit” struck a perfect balance between processed and organic, anthemic and intimate. Sophomore sensation Meteora proved the band’s first album wasn’t a fluke, taking the successes of the first album and expanding upon them, sonically and emotionally.

From that point on, the band fully embraced the eclecticism hinted at in the first two records: they joined forces with hip-hop legend Jay-Z in 2004 for the groundbreaking mash-up Collision Course EP. It was a catalyst for great exploration… and great risk. Minutes to Midnight was the first of three boundary-pushing, full-length partnerships with iconic producer Rick Rubin (Beastie Boys, Metallica, Adele), followed by the daring, socio-political concept epic A Thousand Suns.

With so many forward-thinking looks in a catalog of just four albums, the band found imaginative ways of tying them together in 2012’s diverse LIVING THINGS. Like all of their prior records, it bowed at number one on the Billboard 200 (and like all of their releases in the prior ten years, debuted at #1 in over 20 countries). This would be another historic achievement—Linkin Park is the first and only band to score five consecutive number one album debuts this century.

Linkin Park’s global touring numbers are even more ridiculous than their album sales. On their most recent tour cycle, the band played to over a million people, in 79 shows, on six continents.  Since their inception, Linkin Park have prioritized exploring innovative means of connecting with their vast fan base. They were among the first artists to capitalize on the power of social media—it’s no accident that they’re the biggest rock group on Facebook, with over 57 million likes as of the fall of 2013.

Indeed, “A LIGHT THAT NEVER COMES” speaks to Linkin Park’s artistic restlessness. A collaboration with electro-house/dubstep musician and producer Steve Aoki, the single brings the electronic elements Linkin Park have always utilized to the forefront—it stands as another curveball from a constantly evolving outfit, ever intent on “building it up to break it back down.” The song appears on the recently released album, RECHARGED, which features new interpretations of songs from LIVING THINGS.

Tickets, starting at $85.50 (plus applicable service fees), go on sale Friday at 10am at the Hard Rock Hotel Box Office, all Ticketmaster locations, online at Ticketmaster.com or charge-by-phone at 800.745.3000.
