Tickets on sale for Guns N’ Roses concert, despite no confirmation from band
Although there has been no formal announcement from Guns N´ Roses or Time 4 Fun, the agency in charge of the band´s 2010 world tour, a Costa Rican production company, 28 Producciones, opened up ticket sales in Costa Rica on Tuesday at noon for a concert date they say is on the books.
In a press conference on Monday, Juan Carlos Campos of 28 Producciones said that the band will play in Costa Rica on Friday April 9. On the Guns N´ Roses website, however, there are no tour dates listed after an April 1 show in Quito, Ecuador.
Campos showed an email to a room full of journalists during the conference that he said he had received from Time 4 Fun, confirming the April 9 show. He said the date will appear on the band´s website under the Tour Dates section soon.
After rumors started circling last week about the possibility of Guns N´ Roses bringing their 2010 Chinese Democracy Tour to Costa Rica, the band´s lead singer, Axl Rose, wrote in his online blog and on facebook that the band will not be stopping here.
Campos insisted on Monday there is a contract signed between Time 4 Fun and 28 Producciones. As of late Tuesday afternoon, no further tour dates had appeared on Guns N´ Roses´ website.
