    Just wondering if anyone planning to hit up Rock in Rio either weekend? I see there is VIP tickets and wanted to know if anyone had gotten those comp'd or even got the regular weekend tickets compd?

    Looks like the 2nd weekend will be a good time for sure.

    yeah I got a marketing offer for free rooms at any prob and Buy one get one, hoping host can go above that and atleast do 2 general admin tickets. would be even sweeter to get the VIP for both days. open bar and catering by wolfgang puck.

    The wristband thing has me concerned if you get comp'd tickets you are supposed to register your wristband id and upload $ to the id of the wristband due to a no cash system on festival grounds. Wondering how that will all work out with compd admission.

    I have an email from March 5th for this festival. Don't know about snail mail I have a stack months old I haven't gone through yet. The email says complimentary tickets for one of the weekends.

    I was excited about going but my friend can't make it anymore. Not sure I want to hangout out at a concert on my own.

    Thank you for the $ info because my little sister is going. She can't do anything on her own and has to have her hand held as she navigates through life so i'm sure she doesn't know this. Her group put her in charge of booking the hotel room and that turned out to be a mess even after I gave her my guidance.

    Several months ago I got an offer for them, but having been to the real Rock in Rio I cannot believe this will compare in any way so I passed up. Nothing like the real thing baby as the song says.

    Yeah I'm sure nothing will compare to the original that one looks pretty badass this looks like a clone of the Set and everything though

    I heard that weekend is completely dead bc of the fight.

    Terrible weekend to plan that.

    Anybody can get anything.

    That's not the fight weekend. The fight is the weekend before. And I had the tickets comped well before the fight was even scheduled for that date.

    Umm I'm aware when the fight is.

    But everyone who's anyone is going to be there for the fight.

    So they're not coming back the next weekend.

    I'm surprised that they thought that they'd be able to get the same kind of crowd both weekends. The only people who I know going to rock in rio pop weekend are 21-25 year olds.

    I also mailed my host about some tickets, he said he would speak with the relevant department and get back to me ...... I doubt my play warrants a comped ticket though
