Black Sabbath and Megadeth in Costa Rica 2013

It is confirmed that both Black Sabbath and Megadeth will be playing in Costa Rica on October 22, 2013. This is confirmed on the official web site http://www.MegaDeth.com. This will bring classic British hard rock and vintage American heavy metal to the National Stadium located in Parque Sabana San Jose. This pair of bands will bring to the National Stadium tons of fanatics, as was the case with past concerts featuring Judas Priest, White Snake and Pearl Jam. This clearly shows that younger Costa Ricans certainly follow and admire both American and British hard rock and heavy metal bands.

Tickets are already on sale and can be purchased online or at http://laboleteria.co.cr/ in Costa Rica. If you want to go, you better move fast. History shows that concerts like this sell out fast. Judas Priest, White Snake, Pearl Jam, Iron Maiden and Aerosmith all sold out very quickly.

Come down for a walk down British and American metal memory lane.  Escape the US, which is mired in government shutdowns, taxe increases and government restrictions. Rock-out in the jungle to Black Sabbath and Megadeth. 

What to Expect the Day of the Concert

You can expect to see many young campers, who are willing to spend days, to get a good spot in line. This is not very different than any other concert in the US, which has a large following. The major difference is that the concert is being held in a brand new stadium, built by China, and the Parque Sabana is a little slice of natural beauty in the middle of San Jose, Costa Rica. You will want to say at a hotel convenient to La Sabana, and there are numerous options in San Jose and surrounding suburbs like Escazu and La Sabana, itself.  The national stadium does not have any parking, and you should expect a lot of car, bus, taxi and foot traffic on the day of the concert.  If at all possible, I would certainly stay at a Hotel close to La Sabana and the National Stadium. This will put you within walking distance of the concert.  If you need go to San Jose or anywhere else in the Central Valley, you have an easy cab drive.  On the day of the concert, you should stay in La Sabana and plan to only travel by foot.
