    Rock in Rio's South American version, which is not to be confused with the brand new Las Vegas version debuting in May, confirmed that Katy Perry, Queens of the Stone Age, System of a Down and Faith No More are among the headliners for the 2015 edition.

    Also, '80s pop stars a-ha will reunite for the festival. Even better, The Hollywood Vampires, which is the supergroup comprised of Johnny Depp, Alice Cooper and Joe Perry, are also on the bill, along with Slipknot and John Legend.

    #Eclectic.

    Rock in Rio takes place September 18-20 and September 24-27 in Rio de Janerio, Brazil.

    The first U.S. version of Rock in Rio is slated for Sin City this May.
