Rock in Rio USA was a music festival held in Las Vegas, Nevada in 2015. A spin-off of Rio de Janeiro’s Rock in Rio festival, it was held on two consecutive weekends in May 2015 at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds on the Vegas Strip.
The festival was to be held biennially from 2015 through at least 2019. However, after attendance and revenue from 2015 edition were below expectations, plans for future events were quietly shelved. In other words, 2015 would be the only rock In Rio USA so we hope you enjoy this footage of Metallica from MasterOfCollectors on YouTube.
