LAS VEGAS (AP) — Organizers say they'll start selling tickets to the inaugural Rock in Rio USA festival on Sept. 26.

The music festival is scheduled for May 8-9 and May 15-16 on the Las Vegas Strip. Tickets are $295 for a one-weekend pass.

A group including casino company MGM Resorts and show producer Cirque du Soleil recently announced plans to build a 33-acre open-air music venue between the Circus Circus resort and Sahara Avenue called the "City of Rock."

Organizers expect more than 300,000 people at the Las Vegas event.

Rock in Rio began in 1985 in Brazil, where 600,000 tickets for the event last September sold out in four hours, according to organizers. Headliners included Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, Metallica and Bruce Springsteen.

The organization also produces festivals in Portugal and Spain.
