Guns N’ Roses Tickets on Sale Despite Controversy

March 19, 2010

Though 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 last week for a concert date they say is on the books.

In a press conference last Monday, Juan Carlos Campos of 28 Producciones said the band will play in Costa Rica April 9 at Saprissa Stadium in the northern San José district of Tibás. On the Guns N’ Roses Web site, www.gunsnroses.com, however, no tour dates are listed after an April 1 show in Quito, Ecuador.

During the press conference, Campos displayed to a room full of journalists an e-mail he said he had received from Time 4 Fun confirming the April 9 show. He said the date will appear on the band’s Web site under the Tour Dates section soon.

After rumors started circulating a few weeks ago about the possibility of Guns N’ Roses bringing its 2010 Chinese Democracy Tour to Costa Rica, the band’s lead singer, Axl Rose, wrote in his online blog and Facebook page that the band will not be stopping here. Campos insisted a contract has been signed between Time 4 Fun and 28 Producciones.

Those interested in purchasing tickets despite the controversy may do so online at www.todoticket.com. Ticket prices range from ¢15,750 to ¢63,000 ($29 to $115).
