There’s no greater feeling than catching a glimpse of Mana in concert and singing all their greatest hits at the top of your lungs.

Really, and that’s why Mana is confirmed to rock the stage at the Rock in Rio USA concert taking place next year, becoming the first Spanish-language artists to be announced for the first-ever U.S. edition of the massive festival.

The event, that will host over 100 performances in a span of two weekends in beginning May, will take place in Las Vegas where Mana will hit the stage on the opening weekend alongside punk rock band No Doubt.

This isn’t the first time Mana performs at the famed Rock in Rio festival, the last time being in 2012 in Madrid, Spain.

“Mana is the perfect example of how powerful the Hispanic community is in the culturally diverse USA. It seemed like the logical thing to have them be part of the Festival’s first edition and we are very proud to welcome them into our journey once again,” said Rock in Rio’s president and founder, Roberto Medina.

This year’s Rock in Rio also features Bruno Mars, Linkin Park, Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Metallica, Deftones, John Legend and more.

The Mexican rock band has had a very successful career, winning four GRAMMYs, seven Latin GRAMMYs, five Premios MTV Latinoamerica, six Premios Juventud, and has sold over 25 million albums worldwide.

The Rock in Rio festival in the United States will be on May 8 and 9 and on May 15 and 16.
