Ornatos Violeta will celebrate the 25th anniversary of their album “O monstro precisa de amigos” (The monster needs friends) with a concert at Rock in Rio Lisboa in June, followed by another at the Marés Vivas festival the following month.

The concert celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Porto band’s second and last original album at Rock in Rio Lisboa, announced today by the organization at a press conference, is the main highlight of the Tejo Stage.

Ornatos Violeta will be performing at Rock in Rio Lisboa on June 22, the same day that the American Jonas Brothers are headlining. The group’s concert at Marés Vivas, in Vila Nova de Gaia, is scheduled for July 21.

“O monstro precisa de amigos”, released in November 1999, includes songs such as “Ouvi Dizer”, “Capitão Romance”, “Dia Mau” and “Chaga”.

In its 20th anniversary year, the Rock in Rio Lisboa festival is moving the ‘city of rock’ from Parque da Bela Vista to Parque Tejo and inaugurating a new stage: Palco Tejo, “where new promises from the national and international scene, as well as established references, will be playing,” according to the festival organizers.

The 10th edition of the festival takes place on June 15, 16, 22 and 23 and today more artists have been confirmed for the Tejo Stage, in addition to Ornatos Violeta.

On the 15th, “the guitars will be queen in the hands of the luxury national team formed by Blind Zero, Peste & Sida and The Legendary Tigerman, who join the already announced Californians Rival Sons”.

On June 16, Capitão Fausto and Neyna join Iñigo Quintero and Lauren Spencer Smith on the line-up for the festival’s new stage, “on a day that’s also a party, but with more intimate moments”.

On June 22, in addition to Ornatos Violeta, Fonzie will be performing on the Tejo Stage.

On the last day of the festival, June 23, “the rhythms will accelerate with Danni Gato, MC Cabelinho, ProfJam and Veigh on the new stage at Rock in Rio Lisboa”.

The line-up for the 10th edition of Rock in Rio Lisboa also includes artists and bands such as Scorpions, Doja Cat, Camila Cabello, Calum Scott, Fernando Daniel, Carolina Deslandes, Macklemore, Extreme, Pedro Sampaio, Soraia Ramos, Pluto, Xutos & Pontapés and Ivete Sangalo.
