TicoTimes.net is now reporting:
If you ever wanted to see Charlie Sheen, Gene Simmons and former members of Guns N' Roses perform together – well, apparently it can happen in Costa Rica.
At least 11 “Rock and Roll All-Stars” will play Ricardo Saprissa Stadium, in the northern San José district of Tibás, May 3rd at 8 PM in a wild and wacky, fantasy camp-style show, Brunka Producciones announced Thursday morning. Notorious TV and movie star Charlie Sheen will be the event’s master of ceremonies.
The show’s glut of glam metal and heavy metal performers is straight off the walls of a male teenager’s room in the mid-1990s – except for Ed Roland of the post-grunge Collective Soul, whose presence only adds to the concert’s oddity.
Sorum, the lineup’s lone drummer, is the architect behind the show. The arrival of three former Guns N’ Roses members, including original bassist McKagan, should please the country’s plentiful metal fans. In 2009, Guns N’ Roses planned to play Costa Rica for the first time ever, but erratic lead singer Axl Rose canceled the concert after his crew deemed the stage unsafe.
Tickets go on sale March 3 through www.specialticket.net and Servimás outlets, Bansbach stores and Insomnio stores. Prices range ₡14,000-₡44,000 ($28-$88).
Details about a world tour, and how exactly all these personalities will fit on one stage, will be given at a press conference in Los Angeles at the beginning of March. More guest stars – yes, there’s room for even more – could be announced in upcoming months.
The trip to Latin America represents the South America leg of the tour, although so far the only set dates are in Central America (Guatemala on May 1 and Costa Rica). Organizers are expected to announce stops in Brazil, Paraguay, Peru, Argentina and Chile.
