Boy George, Juanes set to play in Costa Rica

August 29, 2008

 

 
Eighties pop legend Boy George and Latin sensation Juanes are scheduled to make stops in the Central Valley.
 
Boy George (real name is George Alan O’Dowd) will perform in San José on Sept. 20 as part of a Latin American tour of more than five countries, according to promotion company ESP Producciones.
 
The concert will take place at Club the City in the eastern neighborhood of Curridabat at 8:30 p.m. Ticket prices range from $65 to $93 and can be purchased at mundoticket.com. Boy George is scheduled to perform hits by his band Culture Club in Lima, Peru, the day before his appearance in San José.
 
Earlier this year he was refused a visa to enter the United States due to an ongoing court case in England.
 
Award-winning Colombian pop rock star Juanes is set to swoon a Costa Rican audience Oct. 2 at Alejandro Morera Soto Stadium in Alajuela, northwest of San José, pushing tracks from his fourth album “La vida es un ratico” (Life’s Just a Sec), Universal Music Central America announced yesterday.
 
Juanes’ La Vida World Tour started March 6 in New York and he has since played 35 dates in the United States, 21 in Spain and 18 in other European countries, plus one in Africa. The Latin American leg kicks off Sept. 19 in Venezuela, hitting seven locales in his neighboring South American nation.
 
The singer, dubbed one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people, has penned such hits as “A Dios le pido,” “La camisa negra” and “Me enamora.”
 
On Aug. 27, Juanes debuted as an actor on the Mexican television show Terminales, according to newswire EFE.
 
The La Vida show will mark the first Juanes concert in Costa Rica since his October 2005 Mi sangre tour.
 
Though no date was set, tickets will go on sale soon, according to concert promoter Evenpro’s spokesman José Cañas.
