Bon Jovi add second Wembley date

Extra show however upsets some fans

Bon Jovi have added a second date at London‘s Wembley Stadium for this summer.

The band were already confirmed to be the first group to play the home of English football on June 11, but will now play an extra date at the new stadium, the largest football arena in the world, a day eariler on June 10.

Although there was clear demand for the additional date, adding an earlier show has upset some fans who hoped to go to the first ever gig at the new Wembley.

However organisers AEG defended the move, with Lives Senior Vice-President Rob Hallet explaining:

“I am sorry if anybody is disappointed who bought a ticket for the 11th simply to be at the new stadium for the first show. We took the view, given the band’s massive popularity, that it was better to please all their true fans that couldn’t get tickets than disappoint a tiny minority who just wanted to be able to say they had been to the first show at Wembley.”

For ticket availability for the new date go to NME tickets or call them on 0870 1 663 663.

Bon Jovi played Wembley in 1995 and were the last band to perform at the old “Twin Towers” stadium 2000.
