The Brazilian bash will take place in the iconic city on September 14th and Muse are due to be supported by Alice In Chains on the night, adding to their already busy summer schedule for next year.

The band recently announced a major UK stadium tour penned for spring 2013, kicking off at Coventry's Ricoh Arena on May 22nd before moving on to London's Emirates Stadium on the 25th and 26th and then finishing at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester on June 1st.

Muse's performance is part of a wider festival in Rio de Janeiro with the likes of Metallica, Iron Maiden and Bruce Springsteen already confirmed for playing the event.

The Cornwall trio released their sixth studio album, The 2nd Law, in September and have already embarked on a number of major tours across the UK and Europe since the launch.

Matt Bellamy spoke of the current tour to CBS Local, stating: "Throughout the gig, it gradually comes down and consumes the band. So we end up eaten up by this pyramid thing, which is all very symbolic, of course. We blast out of it and escape."
