Doors to the concert open at 5pm Saturday and there are still tickets available at www.specialticket.net or in person at Servimas (Mas x Menos), and music stores Bansbach music and La Barberia.
Cost is from ¢44.000 to ¢75000 colones.
Dylan gave a concert in Chile yesterday and is expected to arrive in Costa Rica sometime today. On Sunday, Robert Allen Zimmerman (Bob Dylan), born on May 24, 1941 (which makes him 70) in Duluth, Minnesota, U.S. has been an influential figure in popular music and culture for five decades.
A number of Dylan’s early songs, such as “Blowin’ in the Wind” and “The Times They Are a-Changin'”, became anthems for the US civil rights and anti-war movements. Leaving his initial base in the culture of folk music behind, Dylan’s six-minute single “Like a Rolling Stone” has been described as radically altering the parameters of popular music in 1965. However, his recordings employing electric instruments attracted denunciation and criticism from others in the folk movement.by
