The name Steven Victor Tallarico does not mean much to many, but Costa Rica does mean a lot to him. In fact, Steven recently spoke to Viva, La Nacion’s entertainment magazine, that Costa Rica is his second most favourite place in the world.

TylerNassauColliseumSteven Victor Tallarico is better known in the world of Steven Tyler, singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, best known as the frontman and lead singer of the Boston-based legendary rock band Aerosmith.

Costa Rica is my second favourite place in the world after Maui (Hawaii).  I love to go and hear the howler monkeys, I love the canopy, volcanoes and of course, the fans … So, I’ve been there as a tourist twice, the last one a couple of years ago”, Tallarico told Arturo Prado.

Aerosmith will be making a stop in Costa Rica on the Global Warming World Tour. This will be the third concert in Costa Rica inthe history of the band that was formed in Boston, Massachusetts in 1970 when guitarist Joe Perry and bassist Tom Hamilton, originally in a band together called the Jam Band, met up with singer Steven Tyler, drummer Joey Kramer, and guitarist Ray Tabano.

Tallarico (Tyler) and the “The Bad Boys from Boston” will be playing the Estadio Nacional (National Stadium) on October 1, and not at the Ricardo Saprissa stadium as was initially announced.

Since the Tallarico and the boys will have a few days between the EL Salvador and Venezuela gigs, it is possible that he will spend time touring our country. “We have a few days free after El Salvador and before Venezuela, but I don’t know what we will be doing with them”, Tallarico said.
