The new Cidade do Rock opened the doors of its 300,000 square meters for the long awaited preview of Rock in Rio on Tuesday. Rock in Rio Club members, guests and press professionals, totaling approximately 15,000 people could feel a taste of what will happen on Friday. A final exam-like test.

Game XP was great, piling up game fans in the interventions that happened alongside the arena. Luciano Amaral, who will present the gamers battles, celebrated the space opening.

- I think Game XP differs from everything that has already been done in games. First because we're used to seeing events where the guy just goes to play. Our focus is to provide the gaming fan with an experience he can't experience at home. So, for that alone, it is already an event that differs from everything that has already been done, "said Luciano.

At the Rock District, Rogério Flausino and Wilson Sideral gave a glimpse of the tribute they'll do to Cazuza on the 24th. Success. In the chapel, there was a band checking the sound to receive the brides and grooms who will exchange wedding rings during the festival. Lots of people were in awe with the premises of the new Cidade do Rock.

"The environment is too beautiful, too big, too broad. The stages are beautiful. I'm coming on the 17th for Justin Timberlake, and I'm really excited, I can't stop thinking about it, "said Eduardo Tavares, 24. It's his first Rock in Rio.

Carol praised the family mood in the preview this Tuesday and had the opportunity to taste the delicacies of the Gourmet Square.
 
"I loved the Gourmet Square, it has many good options for people to eat. It’s very beautiful. It's much bigger than the last edition, you keep imagining more people. I like this synthetic lawn. It's cool, families are comfortable", said the 19-year-old student.

Around 7:30 p.m., the fireworks led the crowd into delirium. A real show. Soon after, to crown this preview of the biggest festival in the world, Fernanda Abreu made the crowd dance in front of the Palco Sunset. Accompanied by the Focus Group and the Dream Team do Passinho, the pop diva from Rio made a pocket show with some of her biggest hits.

"I'll wait for you on the 15th, huh?", joked the singer after the presentation.

We and Fernanda are with our open arms waiting for all of you, from this Friday on, in the new Cidade do Rock! #RockInRio2017 #EUVOU
