1. Concerts

Blackbear

The Californian singer, composer and productor is coming to Brazil for the first time EVER! We don’t know about you, but we just can’t wait for it!

The only bad thing about it is that he’s performing only in two big capitals: Rio de Janeiro, on the March 16th, and São Paulo, March 17th.

The Jacksons

This one is for those who miss the 1960's R&B and Soul: The Jacksons. That’s right, Michael Jackson's brothers are coming back to Brazil in 2019. What is curious about it is that the last time the group was here, Michael Jackson was still part of the band and they were calling themselves “The Jackson Five” still.

They will perform in São Paulo on March 16th and in Porto Alegre on the 19th of the same month. The setlist counts with the classics “ABC", "I'll Be There", "Rockin' Robin" e "I Want You Back".

Paul McCartney

One more to the wistful: Paul McCartney is coming to Brazil in 2019! This time, the ex-Beatle will perform three times. Two of them are going to take place in São Paulo (March 26th and 27th) and one in Curitiba (March 30th), but you better RUN because the tickets are really close to sold out.

The shows are part of the “Freshen Up” tour to divulge Paul’s new album “Egypt Station”. In this last one, there is a tribute to the Brazilian fans with he song "Back in Brazil" that had its video clip recorded in Bahia.

Arctic Monkeys

Arctic Monkeys will perform a solo show in Rio de Janeiro on the April 3rd, two days before performing at Lollapalooza in São Paulo. This is a good chance to see their show and paying less for it, comparing to Lolla’s ticket price.

The last time that the group came to Brazil was five years ago. Now, they are back and releasing the latest album “Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino", which is composed by the classics "When The Sun Goes Down", "Mardy Bum" e "R U Mine?". Are you ready for it?
