|Bon Jovi headlining charity concert in Red Bank
'Tis the season for benefit concerts, and one of the biggest will take place at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank on Dec. 21.
Jon Bon Jovi will lead an all-star lineup that night, at "The Hope Concert III." Tickets will be $100-$500, with proceeds benefiting the Valerie Fund Center at Children's Hospital at Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch.
Others on the bill include Southside Johnny, Gary U.S. Bonds, Bobby Bandiera, the Jersey Shore Rock-N-Soul Revue, Mark Pender and Richie "La Bamba" Rosenberg and Tim McLoone & the Shirleys.
The two previous "Hope" concerts, benefiting other charities, took place at the Basie in 2003 and 2006. Like "Hope III," they were organized by Bandiera, a longtime member of Southside Johnny's Asbury Jukes who is currently touring with the Bon Jovi band. Last year's show was actually called "The Bobby Bandiera All-Star Holiday Concert."
