Metal fans get their wish: Dream Theater to play Costa Rica this summer
A concert long-anticipated by Costa Rica’s large metal community finally will happen this summer. U.S. progressive metal group Dream Theater announced on its website that the band will play at the Palacio de los Deportes, in Heredia, north of the capital, on Sunday, Aug. 12. The arena will have a capacity of 4,200 for the show.
On Monday, ticket prices were announced by producer Flevent. The cheapest tickets cost ₡29.000, while the most expensive, VIP tickets, go for ₡49.000. A presale is expected to begin this Friday at Insomnia stores. After the presale, tickets also will be sold online at www.publitickets.com.
The metal stalwarts, who arrived on the scene in 1985 and influenced the genre with albums like “Awake” and “Images and Words,“ also will play Guatemala and El Salvador for the first time.
Dream Theater has often been the subject of concert rumors in Costa Rica, but this is the first time those rumors appear to be confirmed.
