A post over at Xbox360Achievements.org has listed the available achievements on the Rock Band 3 disc. If you are the type of person that likes to find out about these things on your own, I’ll post the list so that you have to select the text to see it.
What was interesting to see in this list is that the total of all the achievements is 1250, not the normal restriction for disc based games. They appear to have gotten around that 1000 point limit as the remaining 250 points are tied to DLC songs.
Here is the list of achievements that you can strive for in Rock Band 3. You will need to use your mouse to highlight the text below to see the actual achievements.

I like the idea of achievement points being tied to certain DLC songs or artists, but I know that I have read, on other sites, that some people are upset because they might not have bought the required DLC and will not be forced to if they want to 100% complete the achievements. Other achievements are tied to the pro mode and there are those upset because they will need to spend more money to buy the necessary instruments to be able to play pro mode and get those points.
I fully admit that I like getting achievements, but I don’t go out of my way to get 100% in all games I play. I simply don’t have time to do that. All that I know is that I cannot wait to get this game and the new Keyboard instrument in my hands for some serious rocking out!
