To catch some of Brazil’s biggest superstars and international headliners, such as Elton John or Guns and Roses, head to the HSBC Arena. This large concert venue can hold up 15,000 people and is located in Barra da Tijuca, Rio’s upscale suburban neighborhood just beyond Leblon and São Conrado. For tickets check the website www.ingressorapido.com.br. Note: Plan your transportation ahead of time! Outside of rush hour, allow at least 30–40 minutes by car from Copacabana. During rush hour, which on weekdays may be anytime between 4–8pm, plan for at least an hour and a half. If you take public transit, travel times will be longer.
