Rock In Rio 2017: The Best Moments from the First Weekend

Rio de Janeiro, Brésil

After what seems like months of eager anticipation, Rock In Rio finally got underway last Friday.

As the more pop-focused of the festival's two weekends, the last few days saw the likes of Maroon 5, Shawn Mendes, Fergie, Alicia Keys and Justin Timberlake take to the stages of the Cidade do Rock. 

Sadly there was no Lady Gaga, following her hospitalisation last week, but the weekend was pretty special nonetheless...

Gisele Bündchen gave an impassioned speech…
