OS PARALAMAS DO SUCESSO
At the peak of their 37-year career, the band Os Paralamas do Sucesso, one of the main representatives of Brazilian rock, will perform for the fourth time at Rock in Rio, on October 6th. The group, who became domestically and internationally renowned for participating in the first edition of the festival in 1985, continues with the same energy of that young trio who once rocked City of Rock with over 100,000 people. "Our feeling is that we're coming back home. We're the same three, and we're going to experience the same emotion as when we came up on the Rock in Rio stage for the first time", the band's vocalist, Herbert Vianna, asserts.
With their swinging rock, Os Paralamas do Sucesso gained prominence on the music scene with the hit Vital e sua moto’ in 1984 and with the album ‘O Passo do Lui’, which yielded the hits ‘Meu erro’, ‘Óculos’ and ‘Romance Ideal’. The band's historic performance at the first Rock in Rio, in 1985, was followed by the album “Selvagem?”. At the time, the record sold over 700,000 copies, boosting the band, who went on to participate at the Montreaux Festival two years later, in 1987.
The fusion of sounds ranging from pop to electronic experiments, without losing the essence that characterizes rock music, allowed Os Paralamas do Sucesso to establish themselves and to become a reference in the music industry. Touring in Latin America and the United States made the band the first Brazilian rock act to become renowned internationally.
