A concert for Jon Bon Jovi ticket holders will go ahead on Saturday night, but not at Stanley Park.
His management team announced on the Global BC Morning News that a concert will be held at Rogers Arena for all ticket holders.
Paul Korzilius of Bon Jovi Management states:
Ever since we were forced to announce the cancellation of Stanley Park, Paper Rain Performances has perpetuated confusion and misinformation. Through it all, it has been Jon’s main concern that he find a way to make good on that promoter’s failed attempt to put on the show. Finally, the stage is set and we can confidently announce that all proper pieces are in place for a great show. Vancouver is a special city for Jon, who recorded three albums and given countless performances here. The task of relocating could not have been possible without Rogers Arena’s support. We also commend our partners, Tourism Vancouver and Tickets Tonight for their quick, diligent work. As we said on Monday, Jon has always been willing, able and excited to perform on Saturday – now it’s real.
The show is open to all fans who purchased tickets to the cancelled Stanley Park show. Ticket holders are advised to bring their tickets with them to Rogers Arena and they will be assigned to a seating section according to the ticket level previously purchased. No additional tickets will be sold.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the performance will be at 8 p.m.
The Stanley Park concert was announced two months ago and scheduled forAugust 22 in Brockton Field.
However, ticket sales for the event has been slow, Paper Rain had failed to get the necessary permits from the city– and the show was officially cancelled earlier this week.
Paper Rain Performances then filed for bankruptcy.
