The Town festival opens its gates for the first time, at 2 pm this Saturday (2), at the Interlagos Circuit, in São Paulo. Rapper Post Malone will headline the day. See the probable setlist at the end of the article.
The premiere of the event still has tickets available for sale, priced at BRL 407.50 (half-price) and BRL 815 (full ticket).
On Sunday, which has Bruno Mars as the headliner, tickets are completely sold out. Find out at this link what to expect from the Hawaiian singer’s show.

Post Malone returns to Brazil exactly one year after performing at Rock in Rio last year, when he won over Brazilians with an enthusiastic and critically praised performance despite the heavy rain that was falling in Rio de Janeiro.
The last passage featured only the show in the capital of Rio de Janeiro and was marked by simplicity.
Alone on stage – with a glass of drink in one hand and a cigarette with a microphone in the other – the New York rapper sustained his show without great resources, charged by his voice with “autotune”, pyrotechnics, the charisma of interactions with the audience and the awkward way of dancing to their own songs.
This time, he returns with his world tour “If y’all weren’t here, I’d be crying” (“If you all weren’t here, I would be crying”, in literal translation), which, in addition to Brazil, toured North America and has dates to fulfill in Mexico, China, Japan, Australia and more.
The first Brazilian date took place this Friday (1st), with a show at Pedreira Paulo Leminski, in Curitiba.
Before the show, he had repercussions on social networks when he met fans in front of the hotel and at the airport, with selfies and even a “go Corinthians”.

What to expect from Post Malone at The Town
The great differential of Post Malone’s new tour is that he gained the reinforcement of a full band on stage, including a mini string orchestra, with a cellist and three violinists.
In addition to the new show, he recently released his fifth album, “Austin”, which bears his legal name: Austin Richard Post.
Despite the disc with 17 new songs, fans need not worry about the possibility of watching the rapper in The Town singing many “unknown” songs.
Malone opted to include only four “Austin” songs on the tour show: “Mourning”, “Overdrive”, “Enough Is Enough” and “Chemical”.
There are good chances of him appearing on The Town’s Skyline stage wearing a Brazilian national team shirt – at least that’s what he did in Curitiba, this Friday, when he appeared wearing a Ronaldo shirt at the 1998 World Cup.

The show opens with “Better Now”, one of his first hits. See below the beginning of the show in Curitiba recorded by a fan.

As he did at Rock in Rio, he is expected to invite a fan onstage to play guitar on “Stay”. In Curitiba, the chosen one was João Fraga, who posted on social media: “This is simply the best day of my life.”

Thanks to the fans, sharing personal stories and interactions with the audience are a constant throughout the show, which should last about 1h40.
Another recurring element is the use of pyrotechnic effects, which should appear in explosions, columns of fire and the like in at least 10 of the 25 songs.
Post Malone’s Greatest Hits according to billboardsuch as “Circles”, “Sunflower and “Congratulations”, are distributed throughout the repertoire.
At the end of the presentation – which should end with the first single from the last album, “Chemical” – the rapper has the habit of getting off the stage and spending a good few minutes interacting with the fans on the grid.
