“We love it. Always had so much fun [in Rio],” Halliday said. “Brazilian audiences know how to have a good time. We have always felt very welcome too.”

Adding, “We’re here for two days only, we wish could spend more time seeing the sights. But I love the beach and you’ve got some pretty nice ones, so I’ll be enjoying that.”
