This concert in front of 120.000 fans was a highlight for the band and its crew during the Crazy World Tour.

Due to the arrival just the day before from a previous concert in Brazil, the lighting for the show could only be programmed hours before going on stage. All existing lighting fixtures including the entire festival stage and rig design as well as the installation around the fascia was integrated into the show lighting design. The audience lighting, which was initially only set up for the live stream, was also employed as a continuation of the stage lighting design in order to enhance the visual experience for the festival spectators, as well as for the fans watching the live stream at home. The concert was voted the best show of Rock in Rio 2019 via a poll conducted by the Brazilian news-outlet G1.
