|Bon Jovi To Play Melbourne
From TICKETMASTER Australia:
Bon Jovi, one of the greatest rock and roll bands in the world today, will explode into action at Colonial Stadium, in their ONLY Australian Concert on March 24. The band will fly into Australia as part of their world tour to perform this one-off-event- in Melbourne. The concert will raise money for The State Emergency Services and other selected charities, who assist victims of Flood, Fire and Drought that constantly ravage the rural areas of Australia. Promoter Michael Chugg said today, “This is a typically generous gesture by the band who have always been very supportive of charities around the world". Bon Jovi are known supporters of the Special Olympics, as well as performing Christmas Benefit concerts in their hometown New Jersey to support local charities. Bon Jovi are happy to be able to reward the support and loyalty their Australian fans have always shown by keeping ticket prices at just $62.60. Hopefully this low price will encourage fans around the country to travel to Melbourne for this one and only opportunity to see Bon Jovi Live.
“We have not been to Australia for 6 years and are coming this time to Rock Melbourne and Roll in the money for these great charities”, Jon Bon Jovi said on the confirmation of the show.
Special support acts for the tour are Jimmy Barnes, who supported Bon Jovi when they last toured Australia in 1995. New Zealand rock/pop sensation Zed are also on the bill. Zed have just been signed to Universal/Interscope in the US, and are releasing their first single in Australia, ‘Renegade Fighter’ February 26th. The Mavis’s and Primary are also part of the local line up.
