Bon Jovi to play Ashton Gate (UK) next summer

Thanks for the heads up, Hath!

From Bristol's Jack FM radio website:

The legendary rock band is stopping off at Ashton Gate next summer during their UK tour.

The band - fronted by Jon Bon Jovi - will be playing on Monday, June 27 at the home of Bristol City Football Club.

Managing Director at Ashton Gate, Doug Harman told us it's great to have them back after they first performed here two years ago: "The feed back we had is that they certainly enjoyed the concert here in 2008.

"Their UK plans for this coming year were for only four dates, one to Edinburgh, one to Manchester, one to Hyde Park and one to Dublin - clearly much bigger venues than Ashton Gate. We're delighted we've been able to shoe-horn another date in-between London and Dublin."

The band started out in 1983 and has sold around 120 million albums worldwide.

Doug added that a lot of hard work has gone in to secure the gig: "To actually get a band of their size and status to a stadium like Ashton Gate is amazing. We're very pleased with our selves!"

Tickets go on sale tomorrow morning at 9am. (venue time)
