Yes, everyone is pretty excited to hear that Guns N Roses (or Guns and Roses for all you kiddies who never knew them) is finally coming to Costa Rica for a concert, even if they’re about twenty years late in doing so.
The concert is scheduled for November 26th, 2016 in the National Stadium in downtown San Jose. The organizer this time is RPM TV, a producer that has a long history of successful events and concerts in Costa Rica.
Want some neat suggestions on where to stay in Costa Rica for the Guns N Roses concert?
We had a Guns N Roses concert in Costa Rica that was promised back in 2010, part of the Chinese Democracy tour, but in the end it seems that due to rivalries between production staff, the concert was cancelled at the last minute. As you can imagine ,the announcement of the Not in a Lifetime tour including Costa Rica as the last stop has raised some eyebrows. Some people are celebrating the news, others are skeptical as to whether or not this concert is another flop in the making, especially since Costa Rica is the last stop on the tour.
The Not in this Lifetime tour features Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan, and Dizzy Reed from the original Guns N Roses lineup. And along for the ride or some other musicians that Axl seems to have picked up along the way: Richard Fortus, Frank Ferrer, and Melissa Reese.
That’s a big improvement over the Chinese Democracy tour, where what it was Axl Rose with a bunch of no-name musicians along for the ride.
There’s not a whole lot of information currently available on what the ticket prices are going to be and what the start date for sales is, but we should be getting that information within a couple of weeks from RPM TV. There’s probably going to be mainly online ticket sales, through one of the typical CR outlets. And judging by other similar recent concerts in Costa Rica, we should see prices hovering around the $80 mark.
So if you plan on making a trip to Costa Rica in November for this year’s tourist season, you might try making your trip around the 26th of November, and seeing Guns N Roses in Costa Rica while you’re at it.
