LISBON, May 26 (Xinhua) -- The Rock in Rio music festival kicked off in Portugal's capital Lisbon Sunday night, headlining Robby Williams, who led fans on a fantastic trip down memory with the song "Let me entertain you."

The acclaimed pop star, famous for early days in the boy band "Take That," last performed in Lisbon in 2003 at the Atlantic Pavillion and on Sunday night sang songs from the album "Swing both Ways," launched in November.

He also reinterpreted themes like "Dream a little dream" and "Puttin' on the Ritz."

Other performances on Sunday included Ivete Salgado, Paloma Faith and Boss AC.

The highly anticipated Rolling Stones will hit the stage on Thursday, as part of their tour "14 on Fire," and tickets have already sold out.
