    Rock In Rio is coming to the U.S. in 2015 and the bill is set to include Linkin Park; according to this Blabbermouth article, the band will play on the festival's Main Stage alongside acts such as Metallica, No Doubt and Taylor Swift. The event will take place in Las Vegas, NV, over two weekends; on May 8-9 and, then, May 15-16. According to a news post on linkinpark.com, Linkin Park are slated to perform during the first weekend.

    Ticket pre-ordering details are available now via Ticketmaster, which also reveals that Rock In Rio U.S. will be held at a yet-to-be-built venue called The City of Rock:

    Metallica & Linkin Park will be in the rock weekend. Taylor Swift will be in the pop weekend.

    Don't forget Justin Timberlake was in Rock in Rio this year.

    Also, don't forget that Rod Stewart was in the first Rock in Rio, and New Kids on the Block and A-ha were in the second.

    It makes no sense to add pop acts when it's clearly rock festival

    Fyi, you can also check rihanna's performance in rock in rio 3 years ago

    My point was that Rock In Rio isn't "clearly [a] rock festival" if the bill has included pop and R&B acts in the past and continues to so even now. :)
