If you ever wanted to see Charlie Sheen, Gene Simmons and former members of Guns N’ Roses perform together – well, apparently it can happen in Costa Rica.
At least 11 “Rock and Roll All-Stars” will play Ricardo Saprissa Stadium, in the northern San José district of Tibás, May 3 at 8 p.m. in a wild and wacky, fantasy camp-style show, Brunka Producciones announced Thursday morning. Notorious TV and movie star Charlie Sheen will be the event’s master of ceremonies.

The show’s glut of glam metal and heavy metal performers is straight off the walls of a male teenager’s room in the mid-1990s – except for Ed Roland of the post-grunge Collective Soul, whose presence only adds to the concert’s oddity.

The lineup, led by tongue-wagging Kiss lead singer Simmons, consists of Joe Elliot (vocalist, Def Leppard), Jason Newsted (bassist, Metallica), Sebastian Bach (vocalist, Skid Row), Roland (vocalist, guitarist, Collective Soul), Duff McKagan (bass, Guns N’ Roses), Matt Sorum (drummer, Guns N’ Roses), Steve Stevens (guitarist, Billy Idol), Billy Duffy (guitarist, The Cult), Gilby Clarke (guitarist, Guns N’ Roses) and Glenn Hughes (bassist, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath).
