The Cleveland Browns announced Tuesday that Bon Jovi will perform a Fan Kickoff Concert at Cleveland’s FirstEnergy Stadium on July 14. The event will feature a fan fest, a local opening act and a Browns pep rally before Bon Jovi takes the stage.
Cleveland Browns team president Alec Scheiner told reporters Tuesday that Jon Bon Jovi met with team officials and “decided he wanted to do something for the city.” “I’ve never seen anything like it. He essentially partnered up with us to create this event,” said Scheiner.
According to BonJovi.com, members of the Backstage JBJ fan club get first dibs on tickets and VIP Packages for the Cleveland show starting on Wednesday, May 29 at 10 a.m. Eastern time. Tickets will be available to the public starting on Monday, June 3 at 10 a.m. Eastern time.
Bon Jovi is currently on the European leg of its Because We Can tour. After summer stadium dates in the U.S., the band heads to Brazil and Australia.
