It’s a once in a lifetime experience, the possibility of seeing Roger Waters in concert in Costa Rica may not happen again, thousands of fans were counting the minutes for the tickets to go on sale on April 30.
By 7 p.m. on Monday over 20,000 tickets had already been sold and the majority of the locations were already sold out (The Wall, Animals, Wish You Were Here and The Dark Side of the Moon), leaving tickets available just for the cheaper seats (Sombra, Graderia Sur and Us+Them).
The concert of the former bass player, singer and songwriter of the band Pink Floyd broke the sales record in the number of tickets sold the first day, previously it was the band Metallica that had achieved this by selling 13000 tickets in 2010; the E-ticket platform experienced technical difficulties due to the heavy traffic received during the initial hours.
The National Stadium has capacity for approximately 35,000 people.
This stop in Costa Rica is part of Waters’ Us + Them Tour; Waters will be performing songs from The Dark Side of the Moon, The Wall, Animals, Wish You Were Here and also songs from his newest album “Is This the Life We Really Want?”.
