So There's A Gig Happening In The Middle Of The Amazon...
Find out all the details about Rock In Rio's Amazonia Live...
If you thought you'd seen it all, think again. One of the most unique musical events in history, Amazonia Live will take place live on the Amazon river, featuring the legendary Placido Domingo and Brazilian sensation Ivete Sangalo performing with the Orchestra Sinfonica de Manaus on a leaf-shaped floating barge in the middle of the river in Brazil.
The concert will engage a global audience to benefit the reforestation of one of Earth’s most precious resources — the rainforest — by planting over one million trees. All donors will receive a reminder to watch this once in a lifetime music event live from the Amazon on August 27th!
Since 2001, Rock In Rio has leveraged its reputation as the creators of one of the world’s pre-eminent music festivals to support local and global charitable initiatives. Amazonia Live is their way of using music to engage the world to celebrate and support the rainforest, which for them, is both a local and global cause.
You can watch the event on the live stream at livexlive.com on Saturday from 11pm BST.
