Rock icon Bob Dylan will play a concert in Costa Rica on May 5th, promoter company Evenpro confirmed in a special press conference event held a few days ago. This will be also the first time in Central America for the legendary star, which has been declared by Rolling Stone magazine as one of the most important songwriters and performers in history. The concert will be held at the Palacio de los Deportes in Heredia, north of San Jose, and attendance for the show will be limited to 6,000 people.

Costa Rica is one stop on Dylan’s South and Central America and Mexico tour, and the only one in Central America. Other latin american cities that will be included are Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires and Santiago de Chile.

Dylan’s musical career is approaching 50 years as a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, and it has spawned classics such as Like a Rolling Stone, All along the Watchtower, The Times They Are a-Changin and Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door. He has won 11 Grammys in his career, and an Academy Award and a Golden Globe in 2001 for the song “Things have changed”, which was featured in the film “Wonder boys”.

The singer will release his 35th studio album this year, coincidently with this stop in Costa Rica. He’s been on tour steadily since 1988, in his Never Ending Tour, that averages 100 shows per year, and in 2010 reached its 2300th show. He is recognized as a recording artist and performer, but his songwriting has been considered his greatest contribution for years.

Tickets are currently being sold through www.specialticket.net, and prices go from 44.000 to 75.000 colones. Promoter company Evenpro has produced other big-ticket concerts in Costa Rica and Latin America like Elton John, Bon Jovi, Metallica and Iron Maiden.
