PHILLIES: Bon Jovi to perform July 15 at ballpark 19 April 2006
Bon Jovi are bringing their "HAVE A NICE DAY" World Tour back to Philadelphia


Bon Jovi are bringing their "HAVE A NICE DAY" World Tour back to Philadelphia for a big summer bash. The band will perform live at Citizens Bank Park, home of the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday, July 15 at 7 p.m. Tickets for this show will go on sale on Saturday, April 29 at 10 a.m. at Citizens Bank Park, and exclusively through New Era Tickets at 1-800-298-4200 or at

"Philadelphia and the Bon Jovi fans in this city have been with us for a long time," said front man Jon Bon Jovi. "Philly is always a great time for us and the big outdoor show is going to be a great night of rock 'n' roll - one big party."

Rockers Nickelback, with radio hits "Photograph" and "How You Remind Me," will take the stage as special guests.

Bon Jovi played two sold-out shows on this tour at the Wachovia Center on December 2 and 3, 2005.

Bon Jovi has deep roots in Philadelphia. From early club shows to the recording of the band's second album, Philadelphia has hosted the band for more than two decades. More recently, Jon Bon Jovi became co-owner of the Philadelphia Soul, the local Arena Football League franchise, whose commitment to community service finds the organization devoting time and money to worthy Philadelphia-based charities and causes. The band's latest video single, "Who Says You Can't Go Home," (the country version of which earned Bon Jovi and Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland a 2006 CMT Award for "Best Collaborative Video") documents houses being built in North Philadelphia, as part of Bon Jovi's partnership with Habitat for Humanity. By fall, a total of six homes will be completed or under construction thanks to the Bon Jovi relationship with Habitat for Humanity in Philadelphia.

Bon Jovi is the second act to ever perform at the three-year old Citizens Bank Park, after Jimmy Buffett christened the concert stage last summer with two performances in August (2005).

"We're very excited to have Bon Jovi perform at Citizens Bank Park," said Phillies President David Montgomery. "We expect this to be a memorable entertainment event for thousands of fans throughout the Greater Philadelphia region. Global Spectrum and Electric Factory Concerts are terrific partners and we can't wait to hear the great sounds of Bon Jovi from our ballpark this summer."
