Costa Rican pianist and composer and Culture Minister Manuel Obregón will open for Elton’s February 3 concert at the Ricardo Saprissa Stadium in Tibás, the daily La Nación has reported.
Obregón, a renowned musician who has composed more than 20 albums, will perform an extract from his latest work for the occasion.
The Culture Minister assured La Nación that his performance would not affect his ministerial duties because the event is in the evening.
I can undertake any musical activity after 4 p.m., so there is no problem, Obregón stated.
The concert will be Eltons 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.
