Costa Rican culture minister to open for Elton John

January 18, 2012

Costa Rican pianist and composer – and culture minister – Manuel Obregón will open for Elton John’s Feb. 3 concert at the Ricardo Saprissa Stadium in Tibás, north of San José, the daily La Nación reported.

Obregón, a renowned musician who has composed more than 20 albums, will perform an extract from his latest work, “Simbiosis, piano y bosque tropical seco,” for the occasion, according to concert producer Evenpro.

The culture minister assured La Nación that his performance would not affect his ministerial duties because the concert is in the evening.

“I can undertake any musical activity after 4 p.m., so there is no problem,” Obregón told the daily.

The concert will be John’s first in Costa Rica. Tickets cost ₡19,000-₡74,000 ($38-$148) and are available online at www.specialticket.net and at Servimás outlets and La Barbería and Bansbach stores.
