The April Music Scene

Day 255 – April 2, 2012

I have written before about how Lima, Peru, is a go-to destination for musical acts and how the 1980s are alive and well on the radio airwaves.

Today’s post, in a way, combines those two elements as I provide for you a list of some of the performers coming to the City of Kings in April, which is a mix of local flavor and the 80s.

Tenor Juan Diego Florez – April 10
Roger Hodgson, former member of the band Supertramp – April 12
Star of Camp Rock and the Disney Channel show Sonny With a Cause, Demi Lovato – April 17
Swedish pop duo Roxette – April 21
Roberto Carlos, Brazilian singer and composer – April 26
Lead singer and founding member of UB40, Ali Campbell – April 28

But wait, there’s more…

Coming April 27 to Lima is the Rock & Roll All-Stars show consisting of (in part)…
Gene Simmons (KISS),
Duff McKagan (Guns N Roses),
Sebastian Bach (Skid Row),
Joe Elliot (Def Leppard),
Vince Neil (Motley Crue),
Billy Duffy (The Cult), and
Ed Roland (Collective Soul)

To give you an idea of ticket prices, I have the list of prices for the Roxette concert.

The lowest level of tickets goes for S/. 84, which is equivalent of $31.50 (using an exchange rate of $1 = S/. 2.664). The VIP level of tickets sell for S/. 218 ($82). The penultimate level, Platinum B, will set you back S/. 360 ($135) and the highest level, Platinum A, charge S/. 465 ($174).

I obtained this list when I had lunch one day at Bembos, the Peruvian hamburger franchise. They’re one of the sponsors of the tour.
