Rio ’88 is the home video release from Tina’s legendary concert at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro on January 16, 1988 as part of her 1987 / ’88 Break Every Rule Tour. With this concert in front of over 180,000 people, Tina broke an attendance record that landed her in the Guinness Book of World Records with the largest paying audience for a single artist. Unfortunately, some songs from the original setlist are missing in this release. The tracks Show Some Respect and It’s Only Love have been broadcasted in a TV-Special in South America and the video footage of the encore song Nutbush City Limits was used for the music video of the first German single from the album Live In Europe. The video was re-issued in 2007 on a 3 DVD Box Set.
