At a press conference at the Jazz Café in Escazú, Main Event and Flevent announced that Aerosmith’s The Global Warming Tour will include Costa Rica. This will be Aerosmith’s third time playing in Costa Rica. The band came to Costa Rica in 1994, 2010, and their next show will be on October 1, in the Estadio Saprissa in Tibás.
The Global Warming Tour started in 2012 and is part of an ongoing tour that spans the globe. The tour includes 66 shows to date in North America, Asia, Oceania, and South America. Aerosmith is currently in Singapore. The Latin American part of the tour will begin on September 28, in Caracas, Venezuela, then moving on to Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Mexico.
On the tour the band has premiered four new songs; Legendary Child, What Could Have Been Love, Lover A Lot, and Oh Yeah. Along with new songs the band has also been playing many of their biggest hits from the band’s 40 year and 15 studio album history; Dream On, Walk This Way, and Sweet Emotion to name a few. The show has featured trap doors, smoke, videos, lights, and the show in Costa Rica should not be one to disappoint.

“On behalf of Akasha, we are very happy and grateful for the invitation. We are all fans (of Aerosmith) and believe the only way to face this opportunity is doing what we always do: give it everything on stage”, said Emmanuel Sotela, guitarist for Akasha.
Before announcing the show, Main Event and Flevent sent out a message to the press saying they were about to announce “the most anticipated show of the year”.
