Ko?n, P.O.D. Concert Announced for April 24

March 19, 2010

Rock and rumor have always gone together like popcorn and melted butter. In Costa Rica, that axiom seems doubly true, with some bitter salt added to the mix.

In the midst of the hubbub about a possible Guns N’ Roses appearance April 9, the 1990s-born heavy metal, rap-infused rockers Ko?n and their born-again Christian counterparts, P.O.D., are also said to be planning a Costa Rica concert, reportedly on April 24. But, as with the Guns N’ Roses show, Costa Rica doesn’t appear among the tour dates published on the bands’ official Web sites.

Ko?n’s 2010 world tour, Modlife, jumps from São Paulo, Brazil, on April 21 to Orlando, Florida, on May 1, with no dates in between, according to the band’s Web site, www.korn.com. P.O.D. begins a South America tour March 19 in Argentina, but the group’s Web site, www.payableondeath.com, does not list any dates after an April 18 show in Bogotá, Colombia.

According to Costa Rican production company Flevent, Ko?n and P.O.D. will play April 24 at Alejandro Morera Soto Stadium in Alajuela, northwest of San José, and the date will appear on both bands’ Web sites soon. Jose Cañas, the press contact for the event, has already notified the media about reserving credentials for the concert.

Tickets are on sale at www.publitickets.com or at

stores, for die-hard fans willing to risk the controversy. Prices range from ¢12,500 to ¢48,500 ($23 to $88).
