Trivia

  • Rock in Rio II was aired live to 55 countries; 580 million spectators all over the world watched the festival's second edition, and over 3,000 people were involved in the event's organization.
  • 3,000 spotlights illuminated the stadium; 480 of them were airplane headlights, positioned on the roof. The lighting was supervised by US company Samuelson. The sound company, ShowCo, provided the festival a 500,000 watts sound system.
  • The stage measured 85 meters wide by 25 meters deep, and was sided by two large screens, 9 meters tall and 7 meters wide each. When performers spoke from the stage in English, subtitles in Portuguese appeared on the video screens; Prince would shout, "All night long!" and a few moments later "Anoite toda!" would appear on screen. The language barrier proved to be a problem however; since call-and-response parties were lost on much of the audience, with subtitles arriving two beats too late.
  • Due to the fact that the festival featured numerous other acts, who had to share the stage, Prince did not bring his own stage set apart from a few props such as the stairs and ramps seen on the Nude Tour, as well as the the sliding pole.
  • Prince reportedly received $ 500,000 for each performance, according to Brazil newspaper 'Jornal do Brasil'.
