Rock in Rio 2012

The weekend started great and ended beautifully!

Friday I finally got to see Metallica live and they definitely did not disappoint! They started out with older tracks and then played the whole black album from end to beginning. The encore brought Fight Fire With Fire, One and  Seek and Destroy, the last song played by these giants of heavy metal.

Saturday brought old school classics Limp Bizkit, The Offspring, Linkin Park and Smashing Pumpkins.
When Limp Bizkit started playing the crowd was already pretty compact for the first show of the evening, they started the fire with My Generation, rapping it up with Rollin. 
The Offspring didn't let it fade, with old school classics like Staring at the Sun, Get a Job, Americana and Pretty Fly among others that drove the crowd crazy, singing at the top of their lungs.
With Linkin Park came the night's climax, in a intense hour and a half, the lyrics where sang in unison with the fans that knew by heart classics like Given Up, Somewhere I Belong, Numb, Breaking the Habit, Crawling, In The End, the list goes on and on. The crowd went wild and they justified the presence of over 80 thousand people. 

The night ended with The Smashing Pumpkins, in a softer, less euphoric mode. I expected more from Billy Corgan, but the day was already won, no matter what came next.
