Elton John to play Costa Rica for first time Feb. 3

November 17, 2011

Slap on your favorite feathered hat and sequined jacket – Elton John is coming to Costa Rica Feb. 3. The knighted British singer will perform here for the first time, concert promoter Evenpro announced last week.

Sir Elton, best known for hits like “Tiny Dancer,” “Benny and the Jets” and “Candle in the Wind,” has sold more than 250 million records during his four-decade career. His trophy case includes six Grammy Awards, an Academy Award, a Golden Globe and a Tony Award. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994, and in 2004 was ranked No. 49 on Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of the 100 greatest artists of all time.

The San José concert is confirmed on John’s official website, preceded by a performance in Lima, Peru, Feb. 1, and followed by a set of shows in Las Vegas in mid-February. The “Rocket Man” will play at Ricardo Saprissa Stadium in the northern San José district of Tibás; the concert will not take place at the National Stadium because Laura Pausini and Luis Fonsi are scheduled to perform in the stadium the previous day.

Tickets go on sale Nov. 30 at www.specialticket.net and will cost ₡19,000-₡74,000 ($38-$148). Advance ticket sales will be offered to Amex customers starting Nov. 26 and to Credomatic customers starting Nov. 27.
