Rock in Rio II, 1991
Guns n' Roses, Judas Priest, Megadeth, Queensryche (I've yet to have the chance to see these guys in concert since, unfortunately)
Actually a bit of a story behind this... I was in my teens back then, around 15. I wasn't supposed to go, but some of my friends were driving down there, so the day we left, I left a note on the fridge. 7 of us in a 3 man pickup. I was one of the people stuck in the back, and it was probably the best time of my life. From Dallas, Texas down to Rio, Brazil. There was almost a million people in attendance, 700,000 people.
This was also the first big concert including Sepultra, though at the time, they were only a national headliner, hadn't yet reached internation status.
I went again for III, but it paled in comparison. I can count on one hand the number of bands that were decent to listen to, with only a few worth coming for (Iron Maiden, Guns n' Roses, Queens of the Stone Age), and the rest were, at best, mediocre, and alot of them crap.
I did enjoy myself in the nightclub though, I ran into Axl there, and don't know how he distinguished himself as an ass everywhere else. Seemed nice enough in person.
I won't be returning for IV
So I wander on, asking where you might have gone
From what I knew before, some things are worth fighting for
Night road leads me to a town because
I'm beckoned by the glow of kerosine and tumbleweed
They're calling out, forevermore worth fighting for
