Rock icon Bob Dylan will play Costa Rica on May 5

March 14, 2012

The legendary Bob Dylan will play Costa Rica for the first time on May 5, promoters Evenpro announced Wednesday afternoon.

Dylan, 70, will play in Central America in Heredia, north of San José, in the Palacio de los Deportes in front of an audience of 6,000 fans. This will be the first performance in Central America by Dylan, one of music’s most influential stars.

Ticket information will be announced in upcoming days, and tickets will be sold through www.specialticket.net.

The concert is not yet listed on Dylan’s official site, but he will be on a Latin America tour in upcoming months, with stops in Brazil, Argentina and Chile.

The singer, known for his impassioned lyricism in songs like “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door” and “Hurricane,” is recording his 35th studio album. That release, coincidentally, is expected to feature a heavy Latin American influence.
