Rock in Rio 1985 Day 1 | Terça, 10. Junho 2025

The first edition of the festival was held from January 11–20, 1985. Queen, George Benson, Rod Stewart, AC/DC and Yes were the headliners, each occupying top spot for two nights (Benson, however, ceded it to James Taylor for their second night in the same bill, due to the huge delay Taylor's extended performance had caused to his concert two days before). About 1.4 million people attended the 10-day-long festival.

The City of Rock, which was built for the festival, covered an area of 250,000 m² (around 2.7 million square feet)

500,000 pizza slices.
