Bon Jovi, one of the world’s biggest rock bands, will perform to a 40,000 capacity crowd at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena in a massive coup for the new venue.

The American superstars have picked the new stadium in Rowleys Green as one of only five in the UK they will perform at next summer.

And the home of the Sky Blues won the concert from local rivals Aston Villa.

Aston Villa bosses had hoped to welcome the band at Villa Park before Bon Jovi representatives saw the Ricoh.

The £113 million stadium now joins Wembley, the City of Manchester Stadium, St Mary’s Stadium in Southampton, and the National Stadium in Glasgow, as one of the “big five” to host the legendary rockers.

The show, on June 7 next year, will be the first open air gig at the venue following on from Bryan Adams’s indoor concert this Friday.
