From BJ Management:
Bon Jovi will give a free, special ticketed performance for former Philadelphia Soul season ticket holders and fans on Wednesday, March 24, 2010 at the Wachovia Center at 5:00pm. While only fans with tickets can be admitted, through the cooperation of WMMR, those that can’t attend can tune-in live via a commercial-free radio broadcast at 93.3FM in Philadelphia or stream it live via www.wmmr.com.
Starting today, a limited number of tickets are now available. Former Soul season ticket holders have been alerted via direct email outreach. All other fans can enter to win tickets online at www.wmmr.com and through on-air call outs on WMMR leading up to the show.
The announcement honors a commitment made by Jon Bon Jovi on WMMR’s Preston and Steve show when he predicted a championship win for the Arena Football team he co-owned, The Philadelphia Soul. He also promised a free performance if his prediction proved true.
Although the Philadelphia Soul claimed victory at the July 2008 ArenaBowl, the Arena Football League had simultaneously begun their own fight for survival that spanned two years and sadly, resulted in the suspension of League operations.
The bittersweet announcement of this special concert to celebrate The Philadelphia Soul brings Jon’s promise full circle as Bon Jovi prepares for two sold-out shows in Philadelphia next week (3/23 and 3/24) at the Wachovia Center.
I SO wish I could go. :( Three years ago on that exact date was the Philly Soul fan club event that I begged my parents to let me go to -- and they ended up sending me there as a birthday present.
I hope all lucky attendees have a BLAST and report back with full details! :)
